This entrepreneurial speaker series features both current NC State students and alumni business founders. Come learn from fascinating tales from the trailblazers who Started at State as they share the secrets and setbacks encountered on their journey to entrepreneurial success.
This event is great for anyone looking to learn more about unconventional career paths in entrepreneurship, student entrepreneurs, and all those curious to see what it takes to start a business from scratch.
This evening’s speaker is Irina Perdew of Vetletics. Dr. Irina Perdew has recently graduated from the NC State University veterinary medicine program. Dr. Perdew was struck with the idea of a compression device for horses in her first year of veterinary school after working with NBA players and a human pneumatic compression device for purposes of recovery. Dr. Perdew was shocked to learn that nothing like this existed for horses and was determined to change that. Her vision is now an NCSU patent pending reality under the name the EQ Press – the one and only Dynamic compression device for horses for the purpose of athletic and medical recovery.
We will be meeting at the NC State Entrepreneurship Garage at Partners I.
