The goal is to make IE@Columbia a self-sustaining, evergreen program. In return for the benefits the program provides, it is expected that each team will provide the program with a small equity stake in their business. It is hoped that over time, this equity participation will generate returns sufficient to grow and enhance the program. This equity participation by the program is separate from any other intellectual property rights the University may have.
Please note the Innovation and Entrepreneurship @ Columbia class has been selected for this year. Information about the 2013-2014 program will be available in September, 2013.
