The kick-off presentation will be given by Dr. James Zuiches, Vice Chancellor for Extension, Engagement, and Economic Development (http://www.ncsu.edu/extension/). Dr. Zuiches has recently been leading a university-wide effort to obtain a Kauffman Foundation grant for NC State to infuse entrepreneurship education across the curriculum.
