Columbia Entrepreneurship, operated out of the Office of the President, provides a central place for information about and programming for the entrepreneurship ecosystem at Columbia - for current students at the Columbia Startup Lab Morningside and for alumni at the Columbia Startup Lab in Soho. We also connect students and alumni with the entrepreneurship nodes at each school and across the University.
Wherever you are in your startup journey, Columbia can help you make the most of your time while an enrolled student on campus.
Each Spring, Columbia entrepreneurs compete for non-dilutive monetary prizes totaling $300,000 at Columbia’s venture competition, StartupColumbia.
This year, we have 59 startups founded by 71 alumni entrepreneurs who hail from 8 of Columbia’s undergraduate and graduate schools.
Here are more ways to get involved with Columbia Entrepreneurship.
