There is no doubt that taking the dive into entrepreneurship can be intimidating. Getting resources and insight from other people can be so helpful! 

Haley Huie, the Director of Experiential Learning and the Albright Entrepreneurs Village, gave us some recommendations to share with you. 🚀

"When I came to NC State I knew what I wanted to major in, or so I thought. After changing my mind six times, I found myself joining Mechanical Engineering which led me to join Pack Motorsports my sophomore year. Pack Motorsports involves designing, building and competing with a mini-baja car. I learned all about 3D design, manufacturing and teamwork. The hard and soft skills I have learned paved the way to several job opportunities.

A year later I stumbled upon the Entrepreneurship Program. I was off to a slow start getting involved but decided to go on a spring break trip to Boston with the Village. We visited Entrepreneurship Programs at Boston College and MIT while also hearing from an entrepreneur at a local coffee shop and the founder of CarGurus.

This trip kicked off COVID-19 where I started selling homemade blankets to make a little money, and since coming back to school I have loved supporting local, attending Entrepalooza, and even entering the Energy Pitch Competition. While I don’t currently have my own venture, I know the experience I’ve gained at NC State will help me get started because I do see myself being an entrepreneur someday. For now, I’ll continue to open myself up to opportunities along the way."

"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."

#FacesofthePack Meet Kai Bele (@kaibele), a sophomore studying business administration with a concentration in entrepreneurship at @ncstatepoole. Kai is also a #AlbrightVillage resident and an Entrepreneurship Ambassador!
