Since 2002, Center for Entrepreneurship (CFE) has developed a reputation for quality programming, innovative training and concrete results. Starting with a mission to accelerate entrepreneurship in Russia, CFE has:

  • Trained hundreds of entrepreneurs who have created thousands of jobs.
  • Created proprietary learning materials, conducted innovative networking events, and directed practical peer-to-peer exchanges.
  • Helped launch and worked with a wide range of business and entrepreneurship organizations that have advanced economic reform efforts in the country.
  • Started a nationwide professional academic association to create new curricula and enhance entrepreneurship education in universities.
  • Partnered with international organizations and companies to provide recognition programs for Russian entrepreneurs, including sponsoring and supporting Ernst&Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year awards.
  • Conducted policy forums to improve the climate for innovation by highlighting the factors that improve and inhibit a culture of entrepreneurship.
  • Provided matching funding for new initiatives that allow CFE to work with new partners and expand the breadth and reach of our entrepreneurship development activities.
  • Facilitated the work of many other important Russian and international organizations such as:
    • Junior Achievement Russia;
    • OPORA;
    • the Russian Microfinance Center Foundation;
    • the Entrepreneurs’ Organization;
    • the US Russia Business Council;

    • the European Foundation for Entrepreneurship Research;
    • the Small Enterprise Assistance Fund;
    • the American Chamber of Commerce in Russia;
    • and the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship.

As a result, CFE has become a credible, respected and internationally recognized force for economic development, the advancement of opportunity, and community well-being through entrepreneurship.
