The National Collegiate Entertainers Group (NCEG) is a 501c3 nonprofit founded, in 2016, by a group of students from Georgia State University. Our goal is to revolutionize the way in which students learn about, and experience, music and the music business. We are a social enterprise, meaning that we strive to create a lasting social change by utilizing the existing commercial ecosystem.
The program works by creating a scale model equivalent to the national music industry contained within the borders of a college campus. We refer to these subsidiary entities as “chapters”. Those chapters are then paired with seasoned industry professionals to coach them along NCEG guidelines. These coaches are tasked with preparing their assigned chapter for entry into contests and competitions that will test their students ability to apply their new-found knowledge. Students within our chapter program are taught about the importance of collaboration and problem solving by utilizing the various skill sets of their peers. They learn how to think critically, develop business strategies, and be financially responsible while utilizing their talents to give back to the community. As a result, our activities not only allow students to leave our program with the network, track record, and competency to be successful in the real world, they also allows us the opportunity to inspire the next generation of musical story tellers.
A donation from you could help us by providing the crucial funding necessary to keep our program growing. All donations are tax deductible and will be used to help us produce panels, events, and coaching opportunities to educate our students. Topics will include protecting intellectual property, what to look for in contracts, and how to responsibly navigate music business financing.
