About

Within Cornell University, the ILR School has the mission of advancing the world of work through its deep understanding of the individual, organizational and environmental levers that enable success. As such, ILR is a natural home for Cornell’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Initiative. ELI collaborates with the cross-disciplinary faculty of the university-wide Entrepreneurship@Cornell consortium. The entrepreneurship faculty at Cornell have started and built companies, lead venture capital firms and continuously mentor students to create successful start-up businesses.
