2021 California Entrepreneurship Educators Conference

Reinventing Entrepreneurship for the Future

April 15th - 16th, 2021


In 2015, the Lavin Entrepreneurship Center initiated a boutique-style conference to bring together world-class entrepreneurship educators, researchers, and center staff to share knowledge and perspectives to build exceptional entrepreneurship programs. In the years since the conference has attracted a diverse group of professionals in academia to join us for a few days of fruitful discussions and new collaborations at the California Entrepreneurship Educators Conference (CEEC).

On April 15th and 16th, 2021, we delivered our 7th iteration of CEEC, hosting 423 attendees from 21 countries and 25 U.S. states and territories. The theme of this year’s conference was to reinvent entrepreneurship education and pedagogy in the year of a pandemic. Thanks to our 100+ speakers and moderators in 35 sessions, we could spark influential conversations that will impact entrepreneurship education for years to come. This year’s theme of reinvent was a continuation of the 2020 conference, where we connected 925 attendees, representing 65 countries and 28 U.S. states to reimagine entrepreneurship education. 

Session videos from this conference will be made exclusively available for registrants after the conference. Details about the 2022 California Entrepreneurship Educators Conference will be released at a later date.
