The NC State Entrepreneurship Fund is used to support programs, activities and initiatives designed to advance all facets of entrepreneurship in support of students, faculty/staff and alumni.

Make an Impact

Anyone can become an entrepreneur at NC State. In 2019, more than 7,000 students participated in entrepreneurship offerings, and 14 percent of the student population enrolled in an entrepreneurship course. These and other entrepreneurship experiences helped NC State students and alumni start more than 100 companies over the past five years.

Your support builds NC State’s entrepreneurial community and enhances our academic programs, faculty talent, cutting-edge tools and investor networks.

About NC State Entrepreneurship

We support, promote and advance a culture of entrepreneurship throughout the university community by providing resources, fostering collaboration and enhancing communications in support of NC State students, faculty, staff and alumni. We are a network of more than a dozen entrepreneurship programs and units across NC State. Together, we represent a broad spectrum of entrepreneurship — social, business, technical — and foster a campus community of entrepreneurial leaders that embody NC State’s Think and Do spirit.


Thank you for making an impact.

Make The Founders’ Pledge

The Founders’ Pledge is a personal and nonbinding commitment to make a gift back to NC State at some point in the future: when you have an exit, IPO, or stream of steady revenue.
