Center for Entrepreneurship & Economic Development

CEED fosters entrepreneurship and economic development in Southeastern Idaho through partnerships with the business community, the Idaho State University College of Business and the University at large. CEED is a hub for business activity and serves as a one-stop shop for university inventors and business startups.

One of the primary benefits of an entrepreneurship center is the opportunity for students to make real-world connections because the center will promote university, business and community links. Mentoring, coaching and other focused efforts by community leaders would enhance the traditional university classroom experience. Learn more about CEED.
