Entrepreneurship Garage

Students working in the eGarage.

A Hub for Student Entrepreneurs

⚠️As the Entrepreneurship Garage transitions to the new expanded space in the Partners I Building, the existing space in Innovation Hall will be closed for the duration of summer 2019. ⚠️

The NC State Entrepreneurship Garage is a venture creation and prototyping space designed for student entrepreneurs. It serves as a hub for students across campus to come together and explore their entrepreneurial ideas and interests.

This startup space has it all – a physical space for entrepreneurs to develop, create and invent as well as programmatic resources like community office hours and pop-up discussions. Members have access to hundreds of entrepreneurial-minded peers, which makes networking and relationship-building easy.

The Garage is open 24/7 for students, so work when the inspiration strikes!

IP Free Zone

The eGarage’s designation as an IP-free zone sets the tone for a collaborative learning environment. Students own 100% of the intellectual property developed here.
