  About PCEI

The University of Guam Pacific Center for Economic Initiatives (UOG PCEI) is a regional project funded by the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration (EDA). It intends to help build local entrepreneurship capacity and local information resource capacity, as part of its comprehensive approach towards entrepreneurship and economic development in the regional areas of the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands (CNMI), the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), Guam, the Republic of Palau, and the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI).

It is aligned with the University’s land-grant outreach mission to support economic development on Guam and the neighboring region. In partnership with the Pacific Islands Small Business Development Center Network (PISBDCN), and housed within UOG’s School of Business and Public Administration, UOG PCEI will serve as a reservoir for accessible secondary and postsecondary entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurial adult training, resource experts for entrepreneurs at all levels, technical assistance for small business planning initiatives, local and relevant market and industry information for industry development, and readily accessible information through its resource database.

Mission initiatives

In order to build and sustain a culture of entrepreneurship for economic development in its respective target areas, UOG PCEI proposes to achieve the following initiatives:

  1. Promote entrepreneurship education in middle and high schools in conjunction with Junior Achievement and the Guam Small Business Development Center;
  2. Provide small businesses access to resource experts for training and technical assistance services (market assessments, feasibility studies, etc.);
  3. Build local research capacity to produce market, economic, and planning data for small businesses and industry development; and
  4. Consolidate links for electronic downloadable local resource information for one-stop small business access.
