Entrepalooza is a free festival celebrating all things entrepreneurship at NC State and is open to students, staff, faculty and the community. Check out all the things we have in store for you below:

  • The Entrepreneurship Showcase: Experience entrepreneurship at NC State through interactive demos, activities and conversations hosted by student/alumni-lead ventures and partners. Use this form to apply for a vendor space.
  • Minute To Pitch It Competition: Hear pitches from 10 NC State student entrepreneurs. Students will have one minute to convince either the audience or the judges that their idea is worthy of the $2,250 audience choice or judges’ choice award. The NC State University Foundation provided cash prizes for the competition. Use this form to apply to participate in the competition.
  • Free food: Exploring entrepreneurship at NC State can make a wolf hungry. We will offer free food and ice-cold bottled water to keep the Wolfpack fed and cooled off while having fun.
  • Giveaways: Don’t leave empty-handed. We will raffle off NC State Entrepreneurship giveaways all evening, and many vendors will give away swag and food or sell great stuff.
