CEED fosters entrepreneurship and economic development in Southeastern Idaho through partnerships with the business community, the Idaho State University College of Business, and the University at large. CEED is a hub for business activity and serves as a one-stop shop for university inventors and business startups.
One of the primary benefits of an entrepreneurship center is the opportunity for students to make real-world connections because the center will promote university, business and community links. Mentoring, coaching and other focused efforts by community leaders would enhance the traditional university classroom experience.
CEED represents an umbrella over four organizations that have been affiliated with the Idaho State University College of Business for several years. These service providers offer help at no to low costs to the client by providing expertise and consultation services to entrepreneurs, start-up business, existing businesses and manufacturing companies.
TechHelp, as Idaho’s manufacturing extension center, provides consulting services to manufacturers and processors in Eastern Idaho.

Bengal Solutions is a minimal-fee-for-service business student consulting program as part of the College of Business Masters of Business Administration and Masters of Accountancy programs.
