Applications for The (IE)Columbia Program Are Due November 19th


Innovation and Entrepreneurship Columbia (IEColumbia) is a new university-wide entrepreneurship program offered to all students, faculty and staff of the Columbia University community. To encourage aspiring entrepreneurs on campus to apply, the Lang Entrepreneurship Center will be hosting information sessions across the university (Morningside campus).

Watch webinar now (30 minutes).

The program is being offered at no cost and will be taught by leading Columbia University faculty members. Topics covered will include the entrepreneurial process, financial forecasting, product design, intellectual property, entrepreneurial finance, and operations. Over the course of 12 sessions, participating teams will develop a fundable business proposal, culminating in a pitch to angel investors and venture capitalists.

“Capitalizing on the intellectual capacity, creativity, business acumen, and the spirit of innovation at Columbia University, the goal of the IEColumbia program is to provide a comprehensive platform for those interested in developing their business ideas into successful ventures,” said Clifford Schorer, Entrepreneur-in-Residence of the Lang Center.

An admissions committee will select approximately 50 participants in early December, and the program will run from late January to May.

The deadline to submit your application to this program is November 19, 2012.
