Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Great innovations stem from someone with a bold vision, a brilliant idea, a hunch.

Since 2014, our Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE) has been inspiring students and Macomb County residents, motivating them to explore and act upon their innovative ideas and learn to adopt an entrepreneurial mindset through:

  • Entrepreneurial training, coaching and mentoring
  • Networking opportunities
  • Workshops and seminars
  • Interactive student events and competitions

…and more!

Whether you're a Macomb student, alumni, community member or a new or established small business, everything the CIE offers is available for free! It's part of our commitment to regional workforce and economic development.
