What is the CFE Symposium?
The inaugural Center for Entrepreneurship Symposium is a morning filled with education, entertainment, and engagement by a carefully curated collection of partners in the entrepreneurial world.
By allowing participants and opportunity to truly interact with those immersed in various CFE programs and offerings, the hope is that attendees will come away with a better understanding of how the CFE is aiming to support the Michigan community, shape the entrepreneurial mindset, and truly innovate how interested parties can become part of this ever expanding ecosystem.
