About the Center

The Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (CEI) was created to teach, coach and inspire students to be entrepreneurial in their lives. The Center provides students the tools and experiences necessary to creatively pursue new opportunities and innovations in the start-up, social, and corporate venture arenas.

Through courses, degree programs and complementary activities such as speakers and workshops, CEI currently serves more than 2,000 students per year. Partnering with other colleges at the University, CEI delivers introductory and specialized courses at both the graduate and undergraduate level, provides practical learning opportunities through GatorNest—an experiential learning laboratory, and offers every graduate student at the University of Florida the option to earn a certificate in new venture creation.

In addition, CEI offers the nation’s most comprehensive specialized degree program focused on entrepreneurship, the Thomas S. Johnson Program.
