Plan to SucCEED Graduation

Plan to SucCEED is CEED’s intensive 40-week program that is designed to help you successfully launch your business. The program gives each participant the chance to start and grow their business by offering them one-on-one advising with a business advisor, 20+ hands-on workshops, the chance to collaborate with peers, and much more!

On Monday, November 26th, CEED held a ceremonial graduation celebrating the 40 weeks of hard work and dedication that our 48 Plan to SucCEED participants showed in creating their new startup companies.

The event featured a graduation presentation to celebrate the highlights of the 40-week program, a speech from our valedictorian, and a Small Business Showcase demonstration where graduates had the chance to put their business on display.
