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.


We’re here to help you unleash your inner entrepreneur and support you every step of the way.
