ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers (GCEC) is the premier academic organization addressing the emerging topics of importance to the nation’s university-based centers for entrepreneurship. With over 250 university members, it has become the vehicle by which the top, established entrepreneurship centers, as well as emerging centers, work together to share best practices, develop programs, and collaborate in advancing, strengthening, and celebrating the role of universities in teaching the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

The annual GCEC Conference is an opportunity to share information about your university’s entrepreneurship programs and to gain exposure for your successful initiatives.  It is also an opportunity to learn from the best practices at other universities and to network with entrepreneurship faculty, center directors, and entrepreneurship leaders from the top universities from around the world.   Last year’s conference hosted by the University of Rochester and Rochester Institute of Technology was attended by over 400 university entrepreneurship leaders!
