Haley Huie Brings Cross-Industry Experience to the NC State Entrepreneurship Clinic
The NC State Entrepreneurship Clinic and Poole College welcomed Haley Huie as a professor of practice and the director of the Clinic effective April 1.
Huie brings a variety of industry experience beginning as a journalist in northern Virginia, an advisor and instructor in higher education and as a business and strategy consultant for a school group on the west coast. Most recently, she spent her time in student-facing programs at NC State in her role as director for experiential learning where she had the chance to build the living-learning community for student entrepreneurs at NC State. She led other signature programs such as the Entrepreneurship Garage, Jump Start summer camp and helped begin the annual Make-A-Thon sustainability challenge on campus.
“Poole College and the Department of Management, Innovation & Entrepreneurship is very excited to have Haley Huie join us as the director of the Entrepreneurship Clinic,” said Jon Carr, department head and professor of entrepreneurship. “One of the great things that we hope to have come out of her role is a much stronger engagement with other faculty in colleges and departments that are interested in exploring entrepreneurship topics for their students.”

In her role as director, Huie will work with partner organizations to create projects within the Clinic to provide hands-on opportunities for students to apply entrepreneurial skills to create value for our community through the MIE 410, 418 and 419 courses that she teaches. In the summer, she will run the summer Andrews Launch Accelerator and spend the majority of her time in the community to support the local innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem through mentorship, venture coaching, service work and program delivery.
“I’ve enjoyed working with everyone at Poole throughout my time at NC State,” said Huie. “This is a dynamic college full of talented, smart and hardworking scholars, professionals and passionate people who care about delivering exceptional programs. I’ve also really enjoyed my Poole student interactions throughout the courses I teach – these students are bright and extremely motivated, and I hope to add to the student experience within Poole.”
