About the Workshops

The CEI sponsors programming throughout the year focused on entrepreneurial learning and growth. Our weekly thinkUBator Workshop series has one goal: to provide CEI member companies with the knowledge and resources they need — access to seed capital, finding potential partners, hiring employees, marketing do’s and don’ts, etc. — to transform their big ideas into a big deal, as quickly as possible. 

About the Center

We do this through support, culture, events, education and research, and connecting with the business community. Meet with one of our counselors to discuss launching or growing your business.
