The Lavin Entrepreneurship Center is pleased to announce the Tenth Annual California Entrepreneurship Educators Conference (CEEC). After the successful 2023 conference, we are excited to continue the tradition of bringing together leading educators and researchers in the field of entrepreneurship!

The theme for the 2024 CEEC is Empower. In recent years, we have seen a significant increase in interest in entrepreneurship and innovation, as more and more people are recognizing the importance of these fields in creating positive change and driving economic growth. However, we still face challenges in empowering students and entrepreneurs from underrepresented groups, and in ensuring that entrepreneurship education and opportunities are accessible to all.

At CEEC 2024: Empower, we will bring together educators and researchers to share best practices and engage in discussions around empowering entrepreneurship education and research. We invite all interested educators and researchers to submit proposals to participate in the conference.

The conference will take place at San Diego State University on Friday, April 19 and Saturday April 20, 2024. A conference kick-off event will be held on Wednesday, April 17 evening and pre-conference events will be held on Thursday, April 18.
