Empowering students through entrepreneurial thinking.
The Baker Institute is dedicated to inspiring and educating
the next generation of entrepreneurial thinkers.
From the seed of an idea through the launch of an enterprise, from problem recognition through value creation, students are immersed in the process of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. The Institute provides authentic opportunities for Lehigh students from every discipline to deeply engage in the entrepreneurial process.
We are committed to providing opportunities for engagement during this time of social distancing. Check out our virtual offerings:
