The Liu Idea Lab for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (Lilie) supports Rice’s innovative energies.
The Liu Idea Lab builds resources to support Rice innovators and entrepreneurs in continuous learning and discovery on their entrepreneurial and innovative pathways. In addition to a new, state-of-the-art innovation lab on campus, Lilie is composed of curricular and co-curricular opportunities, experiences bridging Rice and the broader world, and a dynamic community of people working together.
Our experiential classes engage experts in fields ranging from Business, Social Science, and Engineering, and entrepreneurs and innovators from across Houston and beyond.
From the internship program to the incubator, Rice provides opportunities for all aspects of entrepreneurship.
The Lab hosts events such as the Lilie Lectures, workshops, courses, competitions, and serves as a bridge between Rice and the broader entrepreneurial community in Houston and beyond.
The Liu Idea Lab team are faculty and staff dedicated to supporting Rice’s entrepreneurial and innovation community. We are practitioners, researchers, investors, and experienced entrepreneurs who provide support to students as they develop and advance ideas.
