Programs & Initiatives
Innovation and action is a driving force behind all that we do in the Entrepreneurship Collaborative. It’s what we work to cultivate in our students – an entrepreneurial, ‘Think & Do’ mentality.
There are a wealth of programs at NC State University focused on entrepreneurship:
Arts Entrepreneurship is a minor program where students learn necessary skills to succeed in an arts related venture, as well as how the arts fit into society and the economy.
Engineering Entrepreneurs Program
Students begin with a blank sheet of paper and develop a new product for an entrepreneurial venture. It immerses the student in a simulation-like learning experience that challenges them to change the world.
Students have extensive interaction with the business leaders in the area. They gain experience through working on real-world projects that force them to be innovative and think on their feet.
The institute for nonprofits works to grow the already developing nonprofit and social sector organizations in the surrounding area.
The Entrepreneurship Initiative is a broad, campus-wide organization that is involved with everything related to entrepreneurship or innovation.
Office of Technology Commercialization and New Ventures
The Office of Technology Commercialization and New Ventures is a center for helping inventors and new ventures reach success by providing technology and other resources as well as general support.
