Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization

What is the Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization?

CEO has helped launch multiple student-run start-ups . We provide members with support, knowledge, networking opportunities and accountability to insure the maximum amount of success in their business ventures. We enhance our meetings by bringing industry leaders to speak on relevant topics, exploring local resources, and learning how to implement cutting edge business concepts into our projects. You are by no means required to have an idea or business before joining the group. We welcome students of all disciplines. Our leadership team can help you through the ideation process or match you up with an existing team that is in need of your talents.

What do we do?

The Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization is the premier entrepreneurship organization at GVSU. We focus on active goal setting and accountability to empower students and community members who are serious about their business to go to the next level. The GVSU chapter won 1st place in Entrepreneurial Action the past two years at the CEO National Conference.
