"Just as mathematics is the language of science, creativity is the language of entrepreneurship and Innovation it's action"
--Dr. Nurudeen Oyekola, Chairman Board of Trustees, The Global Confederation of Entrepreneurship Institutes
We are the global voice for the entrepreneurship profession. We serve the public interest through bold teaching, scholarship, practice, advocacy, development and support for our member organisations and the more than 1 million entrepreneurs who are crucial to our global economy.
To be the leading global consortium advancing entrepreneurship education, innovation management and small business
To create an entrepreneurial society characterised by unrivalled entrepreneurial effectiveness and leadership - where quality entrepreneurship education serves as a driving force for inclusive and sustainable prosperity.
Founded in 2019, The Global Confederation of Entrepreneurship Institutes (Home of Entrepreneurship and Innovation) is the first confederation to promote the growth and development of entrepreneurship, enterprise management, innovation management and small businesses globally. The consortium brings together educators, researchers, policy-makers and practitioners from around the world to share knowledge and expertise in their respective fields through publications, programmes, workshops, training sessions and certifications.
The association houses several organisations addressing the emerging topics of importance to the nation’s tertiary institution-based entrepreneurship and enterprise education programmes. It has become the vehicle by which the top, established entrepreneurship programmes, as well as emerging programmes, can work together to share best practices, develop programmes and initiatives, and collaborate and assist each other in advancing, strengthening, and celebrating the role of tertiary institutions in teaching the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
The Global Confederation of Entrepreneurship Institutes is the platform for organisations operating within the following scope: Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Education and Certification; Professional Membership Certification and Licensing in Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Management; Quality Assurance in Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Education and Award of Professional Certificate to Professional Doctorate in Entrepreneurship and Allied fields.
The Global Confederation of Entrepreneurship Institutes is built around four pillars that guide the ongoing development of our organisation. The pillars include:
The Global Confederation of Entrepreneurship Institutes believes that entrepreneurship can be a powerful force within organisations of all types and sizes, in established businesses as well as new ventures. In any industry, in any position, it takes Entrepreneurial Effectiveness & Leadership® to solve problems and make an impact. It was the first to understand that thinking and acting entrepreneurially is more than just an inclination. It can be taught. And our members do it better than anyone. Today in our collaborative community, students/members gain the fundamental entrepreneurial/business skills and liberal arts knowledge necessary to cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset. They then use that mindset to navigate real business situations, putting what they learn into practice and becoming leaders equipped to make a difference on campus and around the world.
Thriving opportunities abound at every corner. Home of Entrepreneurship and Innovation is here to help you identify, recognise, assess, seize, shape, (if needed create) and exploit them for national prosperity. The ability to 'think like an entrepreneur' and 'act like an innovator' and entrepreneurial dynamism (ability of an entrepreneur to make quick decision or effect changes to take advantage of unexpected entrepreneurial opportunities or thinking and acting entrepreneurially) are critical skills for success across industries and are proven tools to help distinguish even, employees in the workplace and accelerate their career. These are more than just an inclination, rather, they can be taught, and we do it exceptionally.
