CES Storefront

The Center for Entrepreneurial Studies Storefront serves as both a gift store open to the community and a laboratory, where our students can learn the skills to operate their own store. Proceeds from the store go back into the program.

Our store is open and receiving business!

Who We Are

The administration and staff of CES are dedicated to each and every individual who are a part of our program. We strive to support our student entrepreneur's in any way we can. We are passionate about entrepreneurship and believe in our mission.

Diversity and Inclusion Policy


At The Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, a diverse, inclusive, and equitable nonprofit is one where all employees, volunteers, and participants, whatever their gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation or identity, education or disability, feel valued and respected. We respect and value diverse life experiences and heritages and ensure that all voices are valued and heard.

We’re committed to modeling diversity and inclusion for the entire arts industry of the nonprofit sector, and to maintaining an inclusive environment with equitable treatment for all.

To this end, anybody may participate in our Entrepreneurial Program, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation or identity, education, or disability. 

We ask that all of our participants, staff, and volunteers, treat each other with kindness and respect regardless of their differences.
