Columbia Startup Lab

Columbia Startup Lab (CSL) is a co-working and incubator space for first-year Columbia University alumni.

CSL provides Columbia’s most promising and dedicated entrepreneurs with a strong ecosystem in which to successfully grow their businesses immediately upon graduation. In addition to office space, CSL residents have access to a strong entrepreneurial community of students and alumni through monthly networking events and regular information-sharing forums. In addition, CSL encourages students to maintain involvement with and take advantage of the resources and advisory support of the Lang Center, Columbia faculty and the broader Columbia Business School community.

CSL is located in west Soho, which is fast becoming a hub of entrepreneurial activity in Manhattan. The Lab accommodates 28 business school entrepreneurs, who upon admission, are invited to stay in the space for up to one year following graduation. CSL hosts 71 seats for graduating entrepreneurs across Columbia University.  A competitive selection process takes place during the Spring semester.

CSL is run in partnership by the Eugene Lang Entrepreneurship Center, Columbia Entrepreneurship, the Engineering School, Columbia College, and the School of International and Public Affairs.
