The Wake Tech Simulation and Game Development program helps fuel this industry in the Triangle by providing high quality, highly skilled employees to the over 40 local game development companies.  But many of our students also have entrepreneurial aspirations.  Those who transfer to 4-year colleges could immediately connect into their student entrepreneurship programs and incubators.
