The Launch of the NCSU E-ClinicFebruary 4, 2015 10:07 AM
After months of behind-the-scenes preparation, HQ Raleigh is excited to announce the launch of the NCSU Entrepreneurship Clinic, in partnership with NCSU Poole College of Management. The clinic is designed to help entrepreneurial college students gain real world experience by working on projects submitted by the startup companies within HQ.
Inspired by the university teaching hospital model, the NCSU E-Clinic is a place where students, faculty, entrepreneurs, and service providers go to teach, learn, and build the next generation of businesses in Raleigh.
“For years, we have envisioned a physical space where faculty, students and entrepreneurs can work together to learn from one another, ultimately moving commerce forward and creating extraordinary value for North Carolina’s economy,” says Lewis Sheats, the NCSU E-Clinic Director. “HQ Raleigh’s collaborative workspace is an ideal location for bringing these resources to the Triangle’s entrepreneurship community.”
Services available through the clinic will include:
- Walk-in hours. Entrepreneurs can walk in or make appointments to meet with clinic staff, including internationally recognized NC State entrepreneurship faculty and graduate and undergraduate students working under their guidance.
- New venture development and research space. Students and faculty can bring their startup projects to the clinic, and faculty will collaborate on research initiatives.
- Community and networking events. The clinic plans to host NC State alumni gatherings, workshops, guest speakers and pitch competitions, as well as innovation and entrepreneurship events in partnership with others.
