From SCEO 2009-2010 Co-President Bret Gladfelty:

"The SCEO is here to get students to think outside the box and connect to give direction and help promote the concept of entrepreneurship regardless of major.  

An established Business Student Association in the Leavey School of Business, we focus on advancing entrepreneurship with competitions, business endeavors and workshops. Our elevator pitch competition with a $250 prize to the top idea is just one of the many opportunities available.  A core group of members attended the CEO conference in Chicago and we look forward to putting the knowledge and connections we established there into practice with all of you as we move forward."
