About ZLI

The Zell Lurie Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies and Center for Venture Capital and Private Equity advances the knowledge and practice of entrepreneurship and innovation through a broad range of activities, including academics, symposium, competitions, and global community outreach.

The Institute is the foremost resource for students and alumni of the Stephen M. Ross School of Business as they pursue entrepreneurial endeavors and private equity careers. Our innovative approach to experiential learning – combined with the Business School’s traditional management excellence – encourages and nurtures students exploring entrepreneurial careers to succeed, autonomously or in a corporate setting, as leaders for new venture creation and growth.

The Zell Lurie Institute is constantly evolving to reflect the ever-changing business landscape; always looking to improve and explore new avenues. That’s why we will continue to influence how the world does business, for generations to come.
