Getting Involved in Entrepreneurship at Columbia

Welcome! Columbia Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Design is operated out of the President’s Office and collaborates with the entrepreneurship centers and innovation hubs at each of Columbia’s undergraduate and graduate schools. 

Here are some tips on navigating the vibrant ecosystem at Columbia:

Get to know the resources at your particular school.

Each school has specific resources and clubs available for its students, so be sure to check them out and get to know the faculty and staff involved.

Sign up and stay connected.

Sign up for our newsletter, and follow us on social media (Twitter, Instagram, and we’re also on Facebook and LinkedIn). That’s where you’ll stay up to date on what’s happening in all the entrepreneurship hubs around the university, see recorded talks, and get a taste of what it’s like to be a part of this community on campus.

Our Monday Instagram stories are a particularly good place to keep up with upcoming deadlines and events.

Meet fellow entrepreneurs and learn from fellow innovators.

Our calendar keeps track of entrepreneurship events around campus, but also be sure to sign up for our newsletter and follow us on social media to get reminders! Student clubs are also a great way to find community: the largest organization for undergraduates is CORE (Columbia Organization for Rising Entrepreneurs), there’s CEO (Columbia Entrepreneur Organization) for business school students, and most schools have clubs based on interest and industry. Here’s a growing list of clubs to check out.
