Columbia Business Lab: co-working Space for Columbia Entrepreneurs

Columbia Business Lab: co-working Space for Columbia Entrepreneurs

The Eugene Lang Entrepreneurship Center announced the launch of the Columbia Business Lab (CBL) last year, a new co-working space in New York City for recently graduated Columbia Business School entrepreneurs. The effort will provide a broad-spectrum of resources, including office space provided by WorkSpace at Edison Properties to access to Columbia faculty and academic resources, designed to support business school entrepreneurs in the successful execution of their concepts after graduation.

Columbia Business School will fund the co-working space, located in the trendy SOHO neighborhood. “The office space and entrepreneurship programming grew out of efforts initiated by the Dean's Advisory Group,” said Professor Murray Low, Director of the Lang Center. Each year a new cohort of Columbia Business School entrepreneurs will be competitively selected to become part of CBL. “We are excited to have 29 entrepreneurs in the program representing 21 ventures this inaugural year,” added Professor Low.

The alumni-run working space will be governed by a leadership board of members with the Lang Center providing management and programming oversight. “In the coming year the CBL leadership team will work with the Lang Center to offer members training sessions and networking events for the Columbia and NYC entrepreneurial community,” said Professor Low. “We are especially grateful for our partnership with Workspace for their sleek, flexible office spaces for small business owners.”

The next cohort will be recruited and announced before the end of the spring semester. Learn more about upcoming activities and application process on the  Columbia Business Lab website.
