Follow Us!: Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Columbia

This year the Lang Center launched a major, campus wide initiative to assist in the commercialization and successful launch of businesses built upon Columbia generated ideas and technology. The program was open to all faculty, administrators, and students – essentially anyone directly affiliated with the university. The response was overwhelming. 

One hundred and two teams submitted business plans, and twelve teams were selected to take place in an intense, seven-month program. The participating teams attended 12 sessions designed to aid in the development of fundable, high-potential businesses. Topics covered included the entrepreneurial process, the market, the customer, financial forecasting, product design, selling, legal issues, intellectual property, entrepreneurial finance, negotiations, operations, leadership, and how to pitch to investors. In addition, all teams were provided with mentors with expertise germane to their projects.
