Roundtable

The Kenan Institute Roundtable delivers a forum for the exchange of ideas among academics, private sector professionals, and leading policy makers in North Carolina, the U.S., and the world.

Roundtable events engage key stakeholders in thought leadership and action. Through a variety of conferences, symposia, expert speakers, and closed-door roundtables, the Institute connects Roundtable members and institutions to generate a deep understanding of the most important issues facing the economy and private-sector business.

Our events and activities vary in size, duration, and topic. Events include special-topic conferences, roundtable discussions, expert panel discussions, and talks by leading policy makers, academics, and business people. In addition to these events, Roundtable members are provided opportunities for experiences “in the field” on projects with Kenan Institute staff and research fellows. Regardless of format, Roundtable events engage members in discussing intelligent, actionable, research-based ideas. Roundtable membership supports the leading work of the Institute’s core initiatives in entrepreneurship, dynamic economies, and global commerce.  Annual sponsorship advances the mission of the Kenan Institute by funding programs, research, and graduate student fellows.
