The Total Package

There’s a reason our mantra is Think and Do. We go beyond lightbulb moments, developing good ideas into market-ready solutions.

More than 190 startup companies began life at NC State, and more than 600 new commercial products started as university research. Multinational companies like SAS Institute and Wolfspeed trace their beginnings here, and many grew out of Centennial Campus.

We offer a complete infrastructure ready to help you launch and grow your business, including investor networks, licensing rights and a tech commercialization office that’s among the best in the nation.

Mann+Hummel achieves next-level filtration with Nonwovens Institute partnership.

Hunt Library offers a unique environment for innovators to invent and prototype.

NC State has been a launching pad for our company. Tethis started while I was part of the NC State Jenkins MBA program, and we’ve continued to grow through the Wolfpack Investor Network.
