Our History

Founders is a student entrepreneurship organization at the University of Illinois. In past years, entrepreneurial efforts on campus have been disconnected and scattered. Founders unifies the lost organizations across campus. We have strong ties with the Technology Entrepreneur Center to ensure a cohesive entrepreneurial experience.

We want our members to succeed. In order for that to happen, we must have a strong culture and environment that educates, inspires, and motivates the right people forward. We are interdisciplinary, open minded, and innovative.

Everything we do is for a purpose and everything we do affects our lives and the lives of others. We will build recognition for the Illinois entrepreneurship community. We will build the foundation for innovation
