Zell Entrepreneurs Program

This elite program is designed to provide support to students who are preparing to work on their businesses full-time upon graduation. The selected students will receive support, mentorship, and resources to get their ventures launch ready, including up to $10,000 to invest in their business. Zell Entrepreneurs are also invited to work with students from our sister programs at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and IDC Herzliya at the Zell Entrepreneurs yearly trek to Tel Aviv, Israel. Participants will have an opportunity to apply for financial investment from the Zell Founders Fund following graduation. This program is open to final-year students from all University of Michigan schools and colleges in Ann Arbor.
