The value of an entrepreneurial mindset is not just limited to entrepreneurs.

At CCEI, we create a culture to inspire entrepreneurs and cultivate startups. Individuals and teams alike develop their vision, passion, and strategy to help bring their business to life. We’ve learned over the years that these skills are not exclusive to just entrepreneurs: they are critical to anyone who aspires to lead their teams in an innovative manner.

We’ve packaged the best of our entrepreneurial programming to provide executives access to curated modules that allow them to learn and develop the value of an entrepreneurial mindset delivered by our team of experts. These programs promise to provide a transcendent learning experience! It’s these skills and more that create the ability to provide transformable experiences through workshops, seminars and programs. We capitalize on our experiences of working with our talented network and translate these into valuable lessons for today’s business leaders.

What is the EMP?

‘The Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile® (EMP) is a cutting-edge assessment tool that examines the skills and capabilities that are needed for this new way of operating. The EMP helps corporate leaders, students and entrepreneurs assess the degree to which they are utilizing an “entrepreneurial mindset” and provides resources to leverage that competitive edge.’ Learn More.

Jennifer Hall, co-author of the Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile, received her PhD from the University of Connecticut. She's aided in the development of the EMP to support leaders, entrepreneurs, and students alike in assessing the level of "entrepreneurial mindset" utilized in educational institutions and corporate settings.
