Entrepalooza is an innovation and entrepreneurship festival hosted by the NC State Entrepreneurship Initiative coming up next Thursday, September 7th! Here are my top 5 reasons you can’t miss it!
1. Entrepreneurship Showcase
Number one is the Entrepreneurship Showcase. Explore and interact with companies founded by NC State alums and see entrepreneurship in action! With over 18 interactive booths and demonstrations – there’s plenty to experience.
2. Minute to Pitch It Competition
Fifteen students will compete in the Minute to Pitch It competition, with one minute each to pitch their venture ideas. Our audience will choose the winning team, who will walk away with $1,000 in cash! So start brainstorming, folks! Students can submit their audition video to ei.ncsu.edu/entrepalooza by August 30th by 11:59pm.
If you’re coming to Entrepalooza with a hungry mind as well as a hungry belly, we’ve got you covered! Join us in celebrating innovation this Entrepalooza with free Chick-Fil-A sandwiches and wraps.
4. The Games and Prize Wheel
Who doesn’t love games and giveaways?! Last year, the Prize Wheel was definitely a highlight! Spin the wheel for a chance to win a t-shirt, tote, or other free stuff. After you’re done, you can go play some corn-hole, spike ball, or giant Jenga! A little birdy told me they’re adding more games this year.
5. Mr. and Mrs. Wuf
Everyone is dying for a picture with Mr. and Mrs. Wuf before they graduate but it can definitely be difficult to track them down. If you haven’t gotten to meet NC State’s favorite celebrities, don’t worry! Mr. and Mrs. Wuf are just as excited about entrepreneurship as we are.
Post your picture and use the hashtag #NCStateEntrepalooza for a chance to be featured on the @NCStateEI Twitter and Instagram accounts!
BONUS! All the fun!
Entrepalooza is a really great experience because it’s a great opportunity to make connections with people that share your same interests and passions. If you need to take a break from the real world and chill out, then hang out with us with us at Entrepalooza! I don’t know about you, but relaxing with free food, prizes, games, and friends sounds like a great time to me.
Entrepalooza will be on September 7th at 5:30pm on The Oval.
