"Coming from a family that has struggled to find its place in the world I came to NC State to truly learn about who I wanted to be going forward. In doing so my original goal was to find a way to use my college experience to springboard myself into my future endeavors and to focus solely on getting my degree and nothing else.
 
However, when I made the decision to join the AEV and pursue a degree in entrepreneurship, I learned of a place where I could express my ideas and creativity and have a family of people behind me all willing to help further achieve my goals. From learning from mentors to connecting with graduates that are farther down the walk of being entrepreneurs than I am it’s been an eye-opening experience for me to be here at this time.

Being part of it has made me focus more on learning about how I can work to change the future and help this generation of students survive and grow and not worry about their future."

I’ve been through a lot of trauma in my life which has shaped me into the person that I am today. In high school, I learned to take action and be decisive. You never know when things may change, so be prepared to seize any opportunity that presents itself. I think that’s how I found a passion for entrepreneurship. I’m a problem-solver at heart: someone who wants to create change, provide opportunities, and serve as many people as possible. 

At NC State, I’ve found value by serving others in the entrepreneurship community. This year, I am a mentor in the Albright Entrepreneurs Village. My goal is to connect students with resources and alumni entrepreneurs in our community. Understanding others’ experiences and seeking the advice of other successful entrepreneurs has been immensely valuable for me, and I hope to create that same opportunity for others on campus and in the village. 

I have used these connections and skills to create my own venture: Nova Digital Strategy (@novadigitalstrategy). Through Nova, I’ve fostered a passion for business development and strategy while learning about startup culture. I love leading projects and eventually want to create a consulting agency catered towards small businesses. I plan to use my experiences and connections at NC State to build out that business. 

#FacesofthePack Meet Ryan Scott (@scyan__), a junior studying business administration  at @ncstatepoole. He is also a #AlbrightVillage resident and mentor.
The @techstars Alabama EnergyTech Accelerator has launched their second class AND one of @ncstate's very own, @fluxhybrids, has been selected to be a part. 

Micah Ulrich and his team will receive seed investment, mentorship and business coaching through Techstar's network. We are so proud of them and cannot wait to see how far they go!
