Meetings of the Minds
Entrepreneurship happens every day at NC State. Through a year-round calendar of events, we help student entrepreneurs build relationships with future collaborators, experienced mentors and prospective investors. And regular educational programs and networking functions encourage our self-starters to explore the potential profits and social impacts of their fledgling businesses.
With campuswide resources and expert guidance, NC State entrepreneurs have ample support to grow their ambitious plans into exciting opportunities. It’s a packed schedule that connects entrepreneurial students, invested alumni and industrious members of the community — all with a clear focus on developing innovative concepts into promising startups.Attend an event

Global Entrepreneurship Week
Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is a celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. During one week each November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators.
Students from all academic departments can participate in entrepreneurship competitions and have access to events, workshops, mentoring that enable them to test and refine their founder skills.Learn More
