Investing in Great Teams & Great Opportunities

The Wolfpack Investor Network (WIN) brings together the NC State entrepreneurial community, NC State alumni network, and innovative private companies to empower the businesses that drive our future.

Our mission is to support the global NC State entrepreneurial community with an angel investing platform and co-investment fund (the Seed Capital Endowment Fund) that engages and leverages the power of the NC State alumni network.

The WIN actively engages and matches NC State alumni network expertise with portfolio companies to support growth and success. The NC State community offers a uniquely powerful opportunity for networking and guidance from industry experts and successful entrepreneurial leaders. WIN members work actively to connect WIN portfolio companies with the Wolfpack Investor Network to foster collaboration and further success.
