Connecting Entrepreneurial Communities

Connecting Entrepreneurial Communities

Michigan State University Extension has been involved in helping entrepreneurs grow their businesses for many years. The CEC program was created in Michigan approximately 8 years ago and was launched in an effort to educate communities on the various tools and resources available to help them help entrepreneurs grow in their communities. 

195 participants from 79 communities in 38 counties (and three states!) participated in the 2015 edition of the MSU Extension state-wide CEC Conference(s)!
