Zell Lurie Commercialization Fund
The Zell Lurie Commercialization Fund is a pre-seed investment fund established to identify and accelerate the commercialization of great ideas generated within the University community and the surrounding area. Zell Lurie Fund participants (Zell Lurie Fellows) evaluate and invest in early stage entrepreneurial opportunities to learn about the commercialization process and how to be a seed investor. The Zell Lurie Fund teams, focused on healthcare, technology, consumer, and cleantech, work closely with founders, entrepreneurs and with the University of Michigan's Office of Technology Transfer in the course of their work. The Fund is also supported by an advisory board comprised of individuals who have been successful in developing early-stage companeis, markets and technologies.
