On October 10, 2019, the Center for Urban Entrepreneurship and Economic Development (CUEED) at Rutgers Business School will host a 10-year anniversary celebration called The CUEED UnGala Experience. The unique event, which will take place at Express Newark, will be a gathering of the Rutgers University community, CUEED program participants, partner organizations, and philanthropic supporters.

In the same way that the hundreds of inner city entrepreneurs who CUEED has guided, inspired, and educated have found original ways to revitalize their communities and build their businesses, our UnGala Experience will flip the script on typical gala events by presenting an evening that’s fresh, dynamic, and innovative – including:

  • Delicious cuisine by restaurateurs who participated in CUEED programs
  • A marketplace that will highlight the unique products and artistic wares of our program participants/graduates
  • One-on-one Q&A sessions about timely business topics between experienced business pros and CUEED’s entrepreneurs
  • Recognition of the CUEED Council of Entrepreneurs, which is comprised of outstanding individuals who have achieved noteworthy business accomplishments and important community service contributions.
