If you have questions about all things entrepreneurial at NC State, we’re here to help.
NC State has always been home to thinkers and doers. We offer students the chance to take a big, bold idea and run with it, and we instill in them the entrepreneurial mindset they need to thrive in the career of their choice.
That takes more than just a Think and Do attitude. It takes a complete infrastructure of academic programs, faculty talent, cutting-edge tools, investor networks and institutional support, including a tech transfer office that’s among the best in the nation. And it takes an entrepreneurship community that wants bright ideas to win out.
You’ll find all of those things at NC State. Here, we love fresh thinking and successful startups almost as much as we love teaching students to succeed.
We can’t wait for you to get started.
NC State is home to a wide variety of physical spaces for enterprising minds, from the Entrepreneurship Clinic in downtown Raleigh to creative makerspaces across campus.
Our calendar is packed with entrepreneurship and innovation events, including a pair of annual celebrations open to the campus: Entrepalooza and the Lulu eGames startup competition.
The NC State Entrepreneurship Clinic was recognized as the exemplary new program of 2017 by the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship.Read more
Run With the Pack
At NC State, we think of every student as an entrepreneur getting ready to take on the world.
All of our academic offerings focus on results and real-world action — whether that means consulting with local startups through the Entrepreneurship Clinic or deepening your understanding of nonprofits and the voluntary sector through the Social Entrepreneurship Initiative. And nothing we do is confined to any one college: From Arts Entrepreneurship to the Engineering Entrepreneurs Program, you can find an outlet for your creativity at NC State.
When you’re ready to take the next step, the wider NC State community will be there with you, offering technical, legal and financial help through the university’s entrepreneurship ecosystem and through alumni-centered initiatives like the Wolfpack Investor Network.
