Columbia Entrepreneurs Organization


The Columbia Entrepreneurs Organization (CEO) works to inspire Columbia students to become entrepreneurs, to help and mentor founders and establish Columbia as the place to go for thought-leadership.


If your startup needs talent, CEO can help with its startup job submissions. Founders who need people can apply to CEO, who will then put forward members of the Organization who fit the role.


CEO’s annual business plan competition and the Lang Fund competition help students start their own businesses by providing expert feedback and start-up capital.

CEO also runs an anual ‘Shark Tank’ event, in which startups battle it out in front of the judges, hoping to win prize money for their venture. Judges include Delphine Braas ’14, Salio; Dan Burnstein, Millennium Technology Ventures; Robb Granado ’10, CommonBond; Chitra Narasimhan ’99, Citi Ventures; Conner Wilson ’15, Thursday Boot Company.


CEO also arranges trips for students, allowing them to experience, first hand, the way people do business around the world.
