Departmental graduation ceremony

Alumni

NC State entrepreneurs don’t lose touch once they leave campus. Our alumni come back, collaborate and share their insights with the next generation.

Enterprising for Life

NC State’s commitment to its budding entrepreneurs doesn’t end when they graduate. Many of the entrepreneurship resources available to students are also available to alumni — and those alumni form a powerful network of like-minded thinkers and doers.

Long after they leave here, our graduates can connect with the other alumni entrepreneurs; attend one of our dedicated events; collaborate with companies that sprang from our campus through the Wolfpack Investor Network; and take advantage of the many services we offer to startup companies and other partners.

At NC State, we foster serial entrepreneurs and lifelong learners. We’re proud of our Wolfpack alumni, their big ideas and all that they achieve in the wider world.

Pack Proud

NC State alumni are everywhere in the world of entrepreneurship. They include the founders of multinational companies like analytics software developer SAS and electronics giant Cree. But they’re also urban beekeepers, craft brewers, medical device manufacturers, award-winning chefs and everything in between.

Many of our graduates maintain close ties to NC State, returning to lend their insights and expertise — as well as their resources — to the university’s broader entrepreneurship effort. From supporting NC State’s campaign to Think and Do the Extraordinary to just meeting with enterprising students and giving them guidance, our alumni are a key element of the university’s entrepreneurial mindset.
