The Enterprise Center at Salem State University welcomes business owners and entrepreneurs of all experience levels to come in and learn something new!

Whether you are starting up a business from your living room or are the CEO of a multi-million dollar company, the goal of The Enterprise Center is to provide you with education, training, and networking opportunities, on the North Shore, to help your business grow and succeed.  Here are some of the programs, competitions, and groups that we run throughout the year:

Weekly Workshops, just-in-time knowledge workshops are held most Tuesdays and Thursdays morning.  Subject matter experts cover topics that every business owners needs to know.  Each workshop can accommodate up to 60 attendees, so please register on our website Click Here:  Workshop Calendar



CEO Groups are facilitated and confidential monthly meetings where business owners share challenges and exchange ideas with peers. CEO Groups are one of our most popular programs.  Why? Simply put, being a CEO Group Member fills a void that cannot be filled within your business.  Group Members consistently tell us that they value the peer-to-peer discussion of common challenges and resulting advice and solutions.  We are currently running CEO groups for solopreneurs, established businesses, million-dollar companies, and large non-profit organizations.  Groups formed throughout the year.

Million Dollar Women – Each year we invite women, who have built million dollar businesses, to share their experience and journey and talk about how they built their success.  We run quarterly Breakfast and Brainstorming events which give women the chance to be ‘up close and personal’ and learn from a Million Dollar Woman.  In addition, each November we offer a Million Dollar Women Symposium. The 2019 Symposium is scheduled for Friday, November 15, 2019 and will feature inspirational women business owners.  Stay tuned for more information on this upcoming event.

The Business Plan Competition gives early-stage and start-up companies an opportunity to share their plans, compete for cash prizes and get business feedback from an expert judging panel.




The Enterprise Center partners with the Massachusetts Office of Business Development, North Shore Alliance for Economic Development and a select group of state leaders to conduct Small Business Clinics throughout the year.  These sessions provide the opportunity for businesses to meet one-on-one with these representatives to discuss their business needs and be informed about federal, state and private resources available to assist them.
