GCEC is the best university entrepreneurship conference anywhere in the world.

It’s the best conference around for entrepreneurship educators and supporters.

Without a doubt, the world’s leading conference for reliably elevating your entrepreneurship center to the next level.

The conference may just be the most well organized and most inspiring 3-day conference I ever attend.

I have attended a lot of conferences over the past 10 years, and this is by far the best conference I’ve been to.

GCEC is the must-attend conference designed by and for entrepreneur center professionals.
