For Applicants: Columbia Startup Lab Response to COVID-19, FAQ

At the Columbia Startup Lab (CSL), the health and safety of our founders is our top priority. As we continue to navigate the situation with COVID-19, we are mindful of state and government policy, university guidelines, and public health recommendations. 

As you know things can change quickly, so please refer to this page for up-to-date information as we continue to adapt. 


Is CSL currently in-person or virtual?

The CSL is currently open to its cohort, with co-working space available in person.

The co-working space has been modified to support the health and safety of the cohort, maintaining all necessary social-distancing, cleaning, and PPE guidelines.

All CSL programming continues virtually – i.e. office hours, workshops, problem-solution sessions, virtual coffee dates, etc.  


When is the move in date for the 2021-2022 cohort? 

Move-in is scheduled for Monday, June 7, 2021.
