Entrepreneurship Alliance

Together we advance the culture of entrepreneurship throughout the university.

The NC State Entrepreneurship Alliance is a federation of university departments, programs and groups offering opportunities for the NC State community to learn and explore various aspects of entrepreneurship. Member organizations collaborate on events and meet often to discuss and share new initiatives.

Mission 

The NC State Entrepreneurship Alliance supports, promotes and advances a culture of entrepreneurship throughout the university. By connecting many different campus communities, the alliance model brings together groups, organizations, companies and generations where they may not normally cross paths. By providing resources, fostering collaboration and enhancing communication in support of NC State students, faculty, staff and alumni, the alliance is powered by, and for our communities.

Marketing Assistance

The NC State Entrepreneurship Alliance has a small team available to assist with marketing-related efforts that enhance entrepreneurship at NC State. Options include photography, videography, feature writing and graphic design that help us tell your program’s story to a broader audience. We’d love to work with you to help tell the story of NC State Entrepreneurship!

Entrepreneurship Garage Classroom

The classroom at the Entrepreneurship Garage is available for Alliance partners to reserve for events or gatherings focused on entrepreneurship. Requests can be submitted at any time and a member of our team will reach out within 1-2 business days to let you know of availability. We have recently installed a Link Bridge camera and microphone in the Garage classroom to help live stream or record events or to host virtual classes. 

NC State Entrepreneurship Fund

The NC State Entrepreneurship Fund is used to support programs, activities and initiatives designed to advance all facets of entrepreneurship in support of NC State students, faculty/staff and alumni collaborations. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis by our advisory council members.
