Andy Albright, a member of North Carolina State’s Entrepreneurship Initiative advisory board, and his wife Jane funded a grant for speakers to come and talk to students at the University about entrepreneurship.
“In these critical development years of becoming an adult, it’s vital that these students seek leadership skills and develop them so that they can get started towards a path of success.” said Andy Albright, President and CEO of National Agents Alliance.
The board’s goals this year is to build upon the established entrepreneurship education programs in the colleges of engineering and management; tie other programs together; build new university wide elements which includes a course for a general education requirement, a K-12 outreach program that establishes N.C. State as priority choice for high school seniors interested in entrepreneurial careers as well as community, social, and networking opportunities for N.C. State students.
Albright and eleven other N.C. State alums were chosen to provide opportunities to empower students as entrepreneurial thinkers, doers, and leaders.
