Celebrate with the Wolfpack

NC State is proud to celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week from Nov. 16 - 22, 2020.

A Celebration of Entrepreneurship

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.

Here at NC State, we celebrated GEW with a variety of offerings across campus. Check out the events from 2019 below and stay tuned as we release our 2020 plans!
