The UMES Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation is committed to assisting students, faculty, staff, alumni and community based entrepreneurs to “Build a Business to Soar Above and Beyond”. We will provide workshops, seminars, speaker series and other events to help foster this development. In addition, we will provide access to build strong and meaningful connections, as well as provide access to a state-of-the-art makerspace to bring creations to life.
