Centre for Entrepreneurship and Enterprise
Vision: To create an internationally recognized Centre of Excellence for spreading the spirit of enterprise through education, training and research using innovative, interdisciplinary approaches.
Objectives: CEED is a multi-disciplinary, campus-wide Centre focusing on entrepreneurial education, training and research. The Centre seeks to create unique opportunities through partnerships among students, faculty members, community entrepreneurial leaders, and companies within and outside the catchment area. These partnerships are expected to leverage the strengths of all participants to develop the critical skills necessary to (1) identify new opportunities, (2) accelerate the development and commercialization of new technologies, and (3) create and grow successful new business ventures. The Centre will serve as the laboratory of the entrepreneurship programme and its major objectives are to:
Create and promote entrepreneurial awareness and opportunities,
Provide students with the necessary skills to think creatively, to successfully launch their own businesses, or to support an employer in launching and growing an entrepreneurial venture,
