Where entrepreneurship students learn by working with real entrepreneurs.
Experiential Learning in the Clinic
The Entrepreneurship Clinic is centered on the pedagogy of experiential learning, emphasizing a hands-on approach where students actively engage in real-world entrepreneurial activities to acquire practical skills and knowledge.
The Entrepreneurship Clinic Experience
For students, the NC State Entrepreneurship Clinic classes are an opportunity to get exposure to working with real entrepreneurs on the real problems they’re trying to address. Throughout the class you will be introduced to a company partner that you’ll work with throughout the semester to complete a project. The projects completed in the Clinic will help you develop and hone skills necessary in entrepreneurship and in your career in general.
For Company Partners
For company partners, the NC State Entrepreneurship Clinic classes are an excellent opportunity to get a hand on projects your startup is facing while giving students the unique opportunity to develop and hone skills that will be applicable in their careers, and on any entrepreneurial projects they pursue. Participating with the Clinic is completely free, so our program tends to be an excellent opportunity for startup companies (and other sized companies) to get value added by our student teams while also helping develop the next generation of entrepreneurs and workers.
