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. In partnership with HQ Centennial, students call the Garage home to work on challenges alongside non-university businesses.

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.

Garage resources include:

Co-working space
– Skills workshops
Staff mentors
– Speaker series
Prototyping equipment
Rental equipment [on hold for Fall 2020]
