Columbia Business School’s Eugene M. Lang Entrepreneurship Center [The Lang Center] powers entrepreneurship, venture capital, and innovation at Columbia Business School and in the global entrepreneurial community. Lang curriculum, programs, and resources follow a three-pronged approach:
Launch: For students and alumni planning to start their own business during or after graduation from business school
Invest: For students and alumni looking to learn about investing in startups through venture capital (early stage and growth) and angel investing
Join: For students aspiring to work at an existing startup or in innovation at a larger organization
Building on a rich tradition of teaching and research in the field of entrepreneurship, Columbia Business School established the Center in 2000 with a gift from Eugene M. Lang, MS ’40. A member of the Columbia Business School Board of Overseers, Mr. Lang was both a successful entrepreneur and a distinguished philanthropist.
