What Our Partners Are Saying

The entire experience from the very first phone call to the project’s completion with E-TAP was stellar. The attention to detail that the entire E-TAP staff and students performed set a bench mark that we will admire for a lifetime.
Steve Lane, President, InteliPort
It was a pleasure for me to be part of this process early on and then to be able to attend the presentation and see the results of the students’ hard work was just great. I am very impressed with what these young professionals are doing and I wish them well. You should all be proud of your accomplishments and the positive influence you have on economic growth here in NC. I do look forward to working with you in the future.
Tom Butler, Butler Farms, Lilington, NC
As the owner of a start-up company, it was an awesome opportunity to be a part of this program. It served a dual purpose by providing us with the much needed technical support and allowing the student to learn and obtain real-life work experience. The student we worked with was a perfect match. He exceeded our expectations and we look forward to continuing a professional relationship. This program was amazing and it was such an honor to be apart of it. Thank you!
