The Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL) was launched on 1 September 2003 with a mission to "spread the spirit of enterprise" by providing educational activities to inspire and build skills in the practice of entrepreneurship. It was originally part of the Cambridge Entrepreneurship Centre (established in 1999), which subsequently divided into two separate organisations - CfEL and Cambridge Enterprise. CfEL is a not-for-profit organisation based at Cambridge Judge Business School, one of the departments of the University of Cambridge's School of Technology.
