The Munir Abdul Lalani Center for Entrepreneurship and Free Enterprise was established by the family of Munir Lalani to support and promote entrepreneurship and free enterprise in North Central Texas.

The Lalani Center assists entrepreneurial ventures, encourages creativity and innovation, and develops and provides curriculum for students at Midwestern State University. At the Dillard College of Business Administration, the Lalani Center works with students, faculty, and staff, as well as members of the North Texas business community to encourage and support successful student innovation and economic development. The Lalani Center also engages with entrepreneurs throughout the region in support of new product development, business startups, expansions, and other entrepreneurial activities. The Lalani Center impacts the local economy by teaching skill to students and entrepreneurs and by assisting in business plan development and supporting angel and venture capital development through programs such as i.d.e.a.WF, and the Texoma Angel Investor Network.
