Engler Entrepreneurship Program – University of Nebraska Lincoln

Engler exists to embolden our people on the courageous pursuit of their purpose, through the art and practice of entrepreneurship.


It’s our goal to build a broad community of aspiring entrepreneurs who believe in the power of purpose-driven entrepreneurship. Engler is rooted as a college program at the University of Nebraska and many of our members are current college students. Today, we seek to build a community of entrepreneurs who might be found in high schools, community colleges, serving as educators, aspiring to start an enterprise or have an enterprise going across the fullness of Nebraska’s landscape. We are building a cohort of entrepreneurs who align with the mission of Engler and desire to grow their communities through the power of entrepreneurship.


Engler is industry agnostic — you can start whatever you want. We’ll help you find your purpose and start building an enterprise to get there.
