Connecting Entrepreneurial Communities

Save the Date! 

Statewide CEC Conference will be held in Howell, MI on October 4th & 5th. Stay tuned for details. Follow us on Facebook for most up to date information. 

Thinking about coming? Here are some comments from previous participants:

“Last year we came with two of us, this year three, and I think next year we will bring the whole team.  It makes sense to bring everyone, rather than spending so much time for weeks and months after the CEC trying to explain to our cohorts how insightful and valuable the information is.  Good people, sharing good ideas and having a good time along the way- what more can you ask for?  CEC really is one of my favorite conferences of the year.”

“Very uplifting, motivating and inspiring.”

“I traveled from Seattle, Washington for this conference, because my team told me “you have to attend- you won’t be disappointed”.  They were right.  The city of Port Huron and its local entrepreneurs were so very welcoming, and it was wonderful to hear how our communities are all so unique but really the same on many levels, when we talk about our challenges and successes.  Thanks CEC folks!  I’ll be back next year!”

“The CEC was a most excellent opportunity to share knowledge, expertise, and network to build entrepreneurial communities.”

“As a representative of a VERY small town, I was unsure that CEC would provide anything beneficial that we could implement in our small town. I was pleasantly surprised! I left every breakout session I attended with at least a few great ideas to make our town more appealing and attractive to visitors, as well as more encouraging of entrepreneurial growth.”

“More, more, more!”

“Loved that there were folks there from so many other states. Loved that this was a casual event with ample time to view the area, visit businesses and network. Would highly recommend this conference.”

“Absolutely loved the concept of involving our local businesses in the conference”

“Great job; love the movement around downtown!”

“Great opportunity for networking and information sharing. I found at least 3 contacts for immediate follow up and implementation.”


“If you want to know what other communities are doing to grow their economy, then you need to attend this conference!”
“The design of the program is brilliant!  Interacting within local businesses and venues is the perfect way to stimulate conversation!  I came away from the event inspired and eager to implement new ideas.”
