A Hub for Student Entrepreneurs
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 meet-ups and skills workshops. 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!
Garage resources include:
– co-working space
– skills workshops
– staff mentors
– speaker series
– prototyping equipment
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.
