Lilie is pleased to announce the launch of Founders Dinners, a once-a-month Rice student entrepreneur meet-and-eat.

Founders Dinners are an opportunity for entrepreneurially-minded Rice University students to build a network of peers and a community of support.  Students will come together once a month over dinner for an honest conversation about the challenges and victories you are experiencing. 

The dinner will be facilitated by a professor who brings deep practical experience as well as academic knowledge.  While the dinners will have some structure, this truly is a low stress opportunity for you to engage with others who share your passion for changing the world through entrepreneurship.

Given the intimate nature of the conversations, admission is by application only.  Please apply here
