Born and raised in Venezuela, GABE GONZALEZ moved to Raleigh to study entrepreneurship at NC State. Today, he manages the NC State Entrepreneurship Clinic, a program that immerses students in an entrepreneurial ecosystem. Much like a medical student observing and learning from a surgeon in an operating room, clinicians observe and learn from startup founders. The Clinic’s mission is to produce the highest quality, entrepreneurially-minded students with the skills to make a big impact.
