The Columbia Entrepreneurs Organization (CEO) is excited to welcome everyone to campus. We have an exciting year of events planned, and can’t wait for everyone to get involved with the entrepreneurship community at Columbia. We have a few events that we want everyone to keep an eye out for, particularly for the first years. Today, August 25th, we are hosting an information session during lunch that will go through many of the resources available to entrepreneurs, particularly geared towards getting first years on track to take advantage of what CEO, CBS, and Columbia University have to offer in their entrepreneurial endeavors.
Tomorrow, we are hosting an event downtown for incoming CBS entrepreneurs to check out our brand new Columbia Startup Lab. There, current students will hear from former students that have launched startups since graduating and have utilized the fantastic WeWork space Columbia has reserved downtown. Afterwards, we will head to a nearby bar for people to get to know their fellow entrepreneurial peers. (Note: Because of space limitations, we have to cap the headcount of this event, but we will certainly have more!)
The next major event planned will be the Peter Thiel speaking event on September 17th (http://bit.ly/1ns9v45). Peter Thiel is a very successful investor, and it is a great honor having him come to campus to speak with aspiring Columbia entrepreneurs. Outside of the Peter Thiel event, we have a tremendous lineup of speaker events lined up over the coming year. In addition, we are organizing a variety of treks where we will visit startups in NYC, competitions, and networking events to help CBS students in all of their entrepreneurial pursuits. Keep an eye on the CBS calendar on this site for more information on all of these great events.
CEO is looking forward to an amazing year, and we are excited for everyone in our community to get involved and utilize all of the programming our outstanding board has put together!
