Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation

The University of North Florida Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (CEI) is an integral part of the North Florida entrepreneurial ecosystem, offering its services to students and the public. The Center was launched in 2019 to connect entrepreneurs with the University, community and industry partners to foster innovation in North Florida.  

Through industry partnerships, the CEI offers a variety of events and educational programs such as Startup Cohorts, Growth Cohorts, Innovation Challenges, Hackathons, and Forums.  These offerings provide experiential learning opportunities to UNF students and development opportunities for local entrepreneurs.  


The Center also collaborates with the Small Business Development Center at UNF, the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce Center for Entrepreneurial Growth, PS27 Ventures (startup leadership training) and other community partners to support programming that nurtures and cultivates locally owned businesses.
