When asked about her leadership talent, she said her response “is always the same, ‘In 2006, I became a member of the Charlotte Regional Business Alliance, which taught me how to be a leader. My company is simply the beneficiary of those lessons
Before I was an investor, I was a participant in the Alliance’s Emerging Business Leaders (EBL) Program. My EBL experience changed the way I think about leadership, community impact, and inspired me to establish a needs-based scholarship at UNC Charlotte. The connections I’ve made through the Alliance are unparalleled. Today, 704 Shop invests in the Alliance because we believe in its mission and wish to be a part of creating for the region the most vibrant and innovative economy in the country.
The Charlotte Regional Business Alliance was formed to support the growth of this dynamic region. It is an honor to serve with Janet LaBar the first CEO of the Alliance and her team. Investing in the Alliance is an easy decision under Janet’s visionary leadership that fully embraces the Alliance’s mission to enthusiastically collaborate to promote and advance the Charlotte region, creating opportunity, economic growth and prosperity for all
