University of Michigan-Flint’s Entrepreneurs Society receives Global Chapter of the Year at 2019 Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization (CEO) Conference.

On Friday, Nov. 1, the UM-Flint Chapter was named CEO Global Chapter of the Year.

CEO is a global network consisting of over 250 chapters and 8,000 students.

The conference brings together nearly 1,500 young entrepreneurs, students, and faculty worldwide to provide a two-and-a-half-day forum that informs, supports, and inspires college students to be entrepreneurial and seek opportunities through enterprise creations.

The conference also offers students the opportunity to network with peers on a global platform.

“We are proud to be the first group at UM-Flint to win this award and share this accomplishment with the city. We feel lucky to belong to a community that is as resilient and determined as Flint. This award is a culmination of high-achieving students working together to develop themselves, classmates, and the community in which we live,” said Todd Fridline, president of UM-Flint’s Entrepreneurs Society.

The title of Global Chapter of the Year is given to the organization that demonstrates excellence in developing its organization, its leaders and offering a comprehensive entrepreneurship experience for members. At the conference, the Entrepreneurs Society executive board presented a summary of events, projects, and collaborations throughout the university and Flint community.
