The NC State Entrepreneurship Clinic and Poole College welcomed Haley Huie as Practice Professor and Clinic Director effective April 1.

She has led other flagship programs such as the Entrepreneurship Garage, Jump Start Summer Camp, and helped launch the annual Make-A-Thon Sustainability Challenge on campus.

“Poole College and the Department of Management, Innovation and Entrepreneurship are delighted to have Haley Huie join us as Director of the Entrepreneurship Clinic,” said Jon Carr, Department Head and Professor of entrepreneurship. “One of the big things we hope to have gained from his role is a much stronger engagement with other faculty in colleges and departments who want to explore entrepreneurial topics for their students.”
