RALEIGH – COVID-19 isn’t going to stop these NC State students from completing the semester or from developing their startup business ideas.

This Wednesday, five graduate students enrolled in the Technology Entrepreneurship and Commercialization (TEC) Program will pitch their ideas on Zoom starting from 6:30pm.

To register, go here.

“These business pitches, open to the public, will be made by graduate students who have spent two semesters developing product ideas and business cases founded on real intellectual property supplied by university and government technology transfer offices,” said Lisa Chang, director of TEC.

Many will go on to create startups with these, she added.

“In fact, successful Triangle startups such as Xanofi, LipoScience, Tethis, and Locus BioSciences started from our program with foundational business cases and founding team members.”
