The Lang Center Welcomes the Incoming Columbia Community Business Program Class of 2014

The Lang Center Welcomes the Incoming Columbia Community Business Program Class of 2014



In 2008, The Eugene Lang Entrepreneurship Center established the Columbia Community Business Program (CCBP), a program designed to support the growth and development of businesses and not-for-profit organizations in Upper Manhattan.

The two year program fosters a business community and offers participants access to Columbia University resources from the Business, Law and Engineering Schools, as well as group and individual meetings featuring professionally facilitated peer learning.

Twelve owners of local businesses that make at least $250,000 or more were accepted into the pilot group (Watch the CCBP video). Now in its third cohort, twenty businesses were admitted into the program. The companies represent a range of industries including construction, food services, retail, fitness, technology and media. The participants, listed below, met as an inaugural group this month and are expected to meet regularly over a two-year period:
