MSU Extension-Connecting Entrepeneurial Communities (CEC)

  • Share:
Name: MSU Extension-Connecting Entrepeneurial Communities (CEC)
Date: October 3, 2018 - October 4, 2018
Event Description:
We are excited to announce that Charlevoix, MI will host the 2018 CEC State-wide Conference.

The “Connecting Entrepreneurial Communities” program was created to help the Michigan economy by educating local community members to the value of entrepreneurship and help create an environment conducive to entrepreneurship growth. 

Developed by MSU Extension’s Economic Development Area of Expertise Team in 2007, originally the “CEC” stood for “Creating Entrepreneurial Communities.”  Within a few years, communities throughout Michigan became aware of the value of the programming offered through the CEC.  In 2012, we adapted to become the “Connecting Entrepreneurial Communities” program and focused our energy to bring entrepreneurial communities together to share resources and exchange ideas. We now develop a statewide reach with the support of the Greening Michigan Institute/Entrepreneurship Development Work Team.

There are various program resources throughout the year, however our major emphasis is the statewide CEC Conference held in October.  The annual conference moves around the state and is packed with great keynote speakers, breakout sessions and active communities engaged in supporting entrepreneurs.

Various locations in Downtown Charlevoix.
