Ask an Innovator
We are creating the ability for Tarheels to ask questions and get advice from innovative and entrepreneurial experts through an online Q&A tool called Ask an Innovator. When an individual submits a question, AI technology will determine if the question matches your professional background. If a match is made, the system will send an email to you for a potential answer. If you can't answer the question, the tool will automatically move to the next candidate for a response. Can we include you on the list of potential expert responders?
