Have an Adventure
Expand your worldview and discover new applications for a big idea. Select groups of students are invited to New York or Silicon Valley to meet with visionary entrepreneurs, leading executives and successful NC State alumni.
There are two trips every year: a fall break trip to New York City and a spring break trip to Silicon Valley. Trips are affordable for students, only $400 all-inclusive.
In addition to these two break trips, we have several departmental partners that also take entrepreneurship-focused trips. Poole College of Management sponsors a trip to Australia, and the Albright Entrepreneurs Village sponsors a trip to a different city in America every year.
Students must be degree-seeking NC State students or equivalent and must be 18 years of age in order to be selected to attend a trip.
Venture to the Valley
Experience startup culture in the most popular startup destination in the world: Silicon Valley! This spring break trip takes students to big entrepreneurial legends like Facebook, Google, and Apple as well as emerging startups like Citrine Informatics, Blue Jeans, and Flexport.
Take a Bite of the Big Apple
Explore the "City that Never Sleeps" during fall break with the New York City trip! Past visits include Jet.com, Exeq, Compass, Venture for America, Squarespace, First Round, Madison Square Garden and more.
