Membership to CEO is available to any UT student. Dues are $20/semester.
We host weekly meetings in which local entrepreneurs share their experience and answer questions regarding entrepreneurship. Before and after meetings are a great opportunity to talk to speakers as well as network with fellow students with an interest in entrepreneurship.
Each year, we attend the CEO National Conference. The conference was in Chicago last year. This year it will be in Orlando from October 30-November 1. Over the course of three days, attendees have the opportunity to see four keynote speakers as well as attend several entrepreneurial workshops each day. Networking is one of the most beneficial parts of the conference with hundreds of aspiring entrepreneurs who attend each year.
Elevator Pitch Competition
This semester marks the second year of our pitch competition. The purpose of this annual pitch competition is to find a competitor to represent the University of Tennessee in the National Elevator Pitch Competition which is held at the National Conference. The prize for our chapter competition is a free trip to the National Conference as well as enrollment in the national competition.
