Among the 850 participants at NC State’s Entrepalooza, held September 7 on Centennial Campus, were a number of Poole College of Management students and faculty. One of those was Jonathan Sadler, a third-year business student who came looking for inspiration, as he is in the process of finding an idea for his Introduction to Entrepreneurship course. He was among several students and faculty with Poole College connections cited in the story, “A Look Inside Entrepreneurship at NC State,” written by correspondents Timothy Willard and Kennedy McClutchen and published in the NC State Technician.
Another participant was Travis Murray, who completed the Andrews Accelerator Launch program this summer with his startup, Rhythcor. He also is an Entrepreneurship Initiative Fellow, which allows him to continue working on his startup, even though he has graduated, according to the story.
In the past five years, 66 startups have gone through the NC State Entrepreneurship Clinic and raised $220 million in outside funding, the article states, citing Lewis Sheats, assistant vice provost and executive director of the NC State Entrepreneurship Clinic and professor of practice in Poole College.
