Start Here Monday

Note: In accordance with the University’s response to COVID-19, NC State’s Entrepreneurship Garage is closed until further notice and Start Here Monday has been paused.

During the fall and spring semesters, the Entrepreneurship Garage hosts Start Here Monday, a casual open house from 3:00-5:00 p.m. every Monday for NC State students to drop in.

At Start Here Monday, you can expect to:

  • tour the Entrepreneurship Garage
  • ask questions about anything entrepreneurship
  • learn about the NC State programs you can get involved in
  • meet an Entrepreneurship Ambassador
  • talk about your business ideas if you have them
  • eat some tasty cookies

Full Garage tours will be offered at 3:30 p.m. during Start Here Monday, so please arrive by then if you’d like a walk-through of the space. Registration is not required, but if you would like to receive reminders for a specific date, sign up below.
