NC State Entrepreneurship Scholarships recognize students excelling in entrepreneurship. We're thrilled to award Gabriel Dunk the 2024 Sameer Murarka Entrepreneurship Scholarship, established by Ragini and Ishwar Murarka in memory of their son, Sameer, to honor his entrepreneurial spirit. Gabriel created Second Chances, a landscaping business, at age 11 and has since promoted community entrepreneurship. He's a junior majoring in linguistics and looks forward to using his language skills to make a positive impact.

Congratulations, Gabriel! 🎉 @ncstatechass

@TrenLend, founded by two NC State graduates, offers both in-person and online rentals from its Cary location. Co-owners Amelia Zahn and Emmy Weiland started TrenLend in 2022 after noticing their friends' frustration with poorly fitting and delayed rentals. They began by lending their own clothes and have since expanded, shipping rentals to 42 states and fulfilling over 300 orders this year. We're proud to feature them on our Wall of Fame in the #AlbrightEntrepreneurshipGarage, celebrating their innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. 🎉
