Rice’s Entrepreneurship Initiative was founded in 2015 by President Leebron, with the aim of supporting Rice’s innovative energies across the liberal arts, professional schools, and the research university.
The new Liu Idea Lab for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (Lilie) captures and builds from this spirit.
The Liu Idea Lab is curricular and co-curricular opportunities, meaningful experiences bridging Rice and the broader world, a physical space on campus opening in 2017, as well as resources to support Rice innovators and entrepreneurs in continuous learning and discovery on their entrepreneurial and innovative pathways.



We are a collaborative effort of students, faculty, mentors and the Houston entrepreneurship and innovation community.
