Center for Emerging Technology and Entrepreneurial Studies (CETES)
Opened in June 2005, Cameron University's Center for Emerging Technology and Entrepreneurial Studies (CETES) is a multipurpose facility that functions as a catalyst for the development and growth of knowledge-based industries in Oklahoma.
CETES serves as a business incubator to sustain new technology companies by providing office space, technical advice and computer support for entrepreneurs to encourage them to locate their businesses in southwest Oklahoma. CU faculty members are available to provide advice in finance, strategic planning, marketing, accounting, business plan development, technology and communication. An in-house support team provides assistance with proposal preparation.
The Bill W. Burgess, Jr. Business Research Center (BRC) is housed in CETES. BRC conducts applied research that fosters economic development in Southwest Oklahoma, maintains an inventory of county and regional economic data and provides information and research results to the business community through outreach activities that include public lectures, forums and publications such as the Southwest Business and Economics Journal.
