About The Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers (GCEC)

The Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers (GCEC), formerly the National Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers (NCEC), was founded in 1996 through the efforts of the University of Maryland and the Kauffman Foundation. The intent of the organization is to provide a coordinated vehicle through which participating members can collaborate and communicate on the specific issues and challenges confronting university-based entrepreneurship centers.

The GCEC current membership totals well over 200 university based entrepreneurship centers ranging in age from well established and nationally ranked to new and emerging centers. Each year a global conference is held on the campus of an GCEC member school. In 2010, the conference will be co-hosted by the Farrell Center for Corporate Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Penn State and the Institute for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, WU Vienna. The Conference will take place on the main campus of The Pennsylvania State University, located in University Park, PA.

These conferences have provided the membership a unique opportunity to interact in workshops and discussion sessions designed around the most pressing issues and concerns of member centers. The conference, which is held in October of each year, continues to be the major focal point for the organization. However, this year’s conference will offer participants the opportunity to continue to interact using the GCEC social network.
