Sometimes coming back to your roots can remind you of why you began a journey in the first place. Reborn Founder and CEO Emily Neville discovered an opportunity for a business that transforms surplus or worn tees into something new. NC State played an instrumental role in Neville’s creation since it served as Reborn’s first campus.

Ongoing Creations

What’s better than taking surplus apparel off the hands of departments and the warehouse where they are collecting dust? Transforming them into products the departments can actually use. We’re excited to work on many departmental orders for NC State. NC State Entrepreneurship and the off-campus E-Clinic housed in HQ Raleigh asked Reborn for help with their upcoming giveaway needs.

As NC State Entrepreneurship begins a new chapter at their recently finished location on Centennial Campus, we’re thrilled to create swag to commemorate the progress. Our team created custom-designed business card holders sporting the signature wolf and a run of laptop sleeves. To fulfill this order, we’ve used a mixture of our high-quality deadstock from manufacturer partners and surplus tees from past events. An NC State entrepreneur started Reborn, and now we’re excited to be part of the next pack of entrepreneurs. 

Our continued partnership with NC State extends to Entrepreneurship’s sister program: the E-Clinic. The E-Clinic provides a space for emerging entrepreneurs to meet, collaborate and work on their business projects while understanding the ecosystem of how a company is built. Using the front of misprinted tees, we designed travel cases for this year’s mentors. The E-Clinic is giving each mentor a Dopp kit for their essentials that zips open to a different word.
