About the Speaker

As an entrepreneur, Sheats is focused on opportunity Identification, execution and education. His leadership has expertly guided the opportunity creation and development of several unique new ventures from launch to profitability, and he has raised venture funding ($8M+) and bootstrapped several ventures from concept to exit. Interstate Logistics, A Sweet Reminder, Securus and Malartu are among the companies he launched, serving as founder and member of the management team that took the startups through the entrepreneurial process.

Sheats has leveraged his experience to develop and lead an undergraduate entrepreneurship curriculum based on experiential learning and individual student development. As a senior lecturer of entrepreneurship in Poole College’s Department of Management, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, he is devoted to preparing the next generation of entrepreneurs. As an educator and consultant, he has been involved in the launch of many other ventures with foundations in non-tech and high technology, venture backed or bootstrapped and high growth to lifestyle start-ups.

As director of the off-campus NC State Entrepreneurship Clinic, Sheats drives this initiative which exposes students to experiential learning, embeds them in the entrepreneurship community and provides the space and tools needed to execute their own ideas. The clinic provides the experiential learning component of the entrepreneurship concentration in Poole College’s bachelor of business management degree. 

Praise for NC State Entrepreneurship Clinic:

“The Clinic was an opportunity to connect the company with new talent. Students provide fresh ideas to problems we wrestle with on the day to day. The presentations/projects are well thought out, deeply researched, and displayed beautifully” – Leigh Debevec, Global Product Specialist at Lee

“It has been one of the most beneficial pieces of my curriculum here at NC State. The real-world start up experience is priceless and I really feel like a more confident entrepreneur having been involved with the clinic” – Alex Milkes, Business major // Worked with Farmshots.
