The Columbia Portfolio
Columbia has been the launch pad for well over one hundred companies based on technology emerging from its many research labs. Columbia typically takes an equity position in these spinoff companies which span across such disciplines as cleantech, robotics, computer sciences, software, bioinformatics, biotech and medical devices.
These startups are considered part of the Columbia Portfolio and you can learn about them in this link:
Separate and apart from the Columbia Portfolio are the many companies that have been founded by entrepreneurial alumni and/or Columbia students.
This group of companies is posted here under the title: Columbia Entrepreneurs.
We are currently building a database of these companies, so if you are aware of a Columbia alumnus who has founded a technology company, let us know by emailing us here: venturelab AT columbia DOT edu
