We Are Innovative

We are the CFE and we’re not your typical educational program. Our founder, Dr. Thomas Zurbuchen, had a vision to coach and inspire U-M students into an entrepreneurial mindset, and since 2008, we’ve been on a mission to do just that. We’ve grown a lot since then, empowering over 30,000 students to fearlessly pursue their passions. But one thing that’s never changed is our commitment to creating a sense of community and providing all U-M students with the opportunity to learn and apply this innovative approach. 

If you’re ready to unleash your creative genius, elevate your knowledge, skills, and leadership, we’re here to support you in reaching your full potential. Let’s join forces and create something amazing together—the future is yours for the taking!

“I would tell undergraduate students to allow themselves to dive into the CFE as much as they can. The amount of resources at your fingertips is unimaginable.”

– Emma Foresi, Industrial and Operations Engineering, ELP Cohort, CFE IA
