The National Collegiate Entertainers Group (NCEG) is a 501c3, non profit organization, designed to share this blueprint with young music entrepreneurs across the country. It is our belief that doing so will help to democratize the music business and promote growth for the $51 billion global industry.

Our board of directors represents 50+ years of industry experience, and our team is dedicated to building infrastructure necessary for the hands-on training of our student members.

The pipeline for college students to enter the music industry...

Our organization exists to encourage music as a form of entrepreneurship and promote the idea of using intellectual property to subsidize the cost of higher education.

Our primary goal is to demystify the music industry by creating a formal,
standardized process, that will allow students, from various backgrounds, to graduate college with a body of work that speaks for itself.

We accomplish this task by building entertainment infrastructure on college campuses around the country; thus, creating a professional network which offers both context and applicable skills training.

Using musical talent to fund higher education...

The average 4yr college/institution spends over $100,000/yr on campus entertainment. Meanwhile, corporations are now spending $1.5B annually sponsoring live music events for the purpose of engaging the college demographic (18-24 y/o).

Therefore, the opportunity exists for us to turn a typical college expense into a potential source of revenue that benefits the schools, the students, and the music industry at large.


Hundreds of potential schools...


Thousands of potential students...


Millions of potential fans...
