Let's make an impact.
The UCF Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership wants to make entrepreneurship an essential part of the UCF experience. Why? Because entrepreneurial leadership skills are essential to creating value, making a difference, and experiencing fulfillment in ALL professional pursuits. The entrepreneurial problem-solving competencies we teach empower UCF graduates to lead innovative startups, corporate ventures, and government initiatives that enrich our lives, our economy, and our society. Our mission is to develop entrepreneurial leaders who will create our future.
The competencies we teach are highly sought after by employers, and provide a foundation for continued personal development needed to grow, change and meet the demands of future professional challenges. No one knows what the future holds, but we are confident that you will enjoy meaningful and fulfilling professional experiences when you serve as an entrepreneurial leader. Join us today and GET STARTED.
What We Do
As our measures show, we engage thousands of students each year in some type of entrepreneurial experience. It may be dipping their toe into the Starter Riot Entrepreneurship Expo or a Starter Meetup, or wading into a class, or diving into startup advising at the Blackstone LaunchPad or UpStarts Accelerator.
The CEL’s well-integrated and mutually-reinforcing initiatives can help UCF students get where they want to go. UCF student starters regularly earn awards and investments, and many launch viable initatives in corporation, non-profits, and government initiatives. ALL initiatives are available to ALL UCF students from ALL academic disciplines and programs.
