Albright Entrepreneurs Village

The Albright Entrepreneurs Village, located on Centennial Campus, is NC State's living and learning community for student entrepreneurs. The Village provides sophomores and above the opportunity to experience entrepreneurship on and off campus.

Residents have the opportunity to explore their interests in a supportive community. Specialized programming includes: mentor and networking events, trips and tours and regular meetings with alumni and startup founders.

Coming into the village, it really surprised me how big of a role I could play. Even in my first couple of weeks I realized I could truly be more than just a student here.
