We are at the heart of innovation and entrepreneurship at The City College of New York. The Zahn Innovation Center will spark your inner entrepreneur – the part of you that dares to think big, take risks, engage your creativity and solve problems. And we offer the training, mentorship, prototyping facilities and other resources to enable you to transform your technology or your idea for social change into a sustainable venture.

Dream

Our coworking spaces allow students to explore entrepreneurial ideas in a nurturing environment.

Design

We provide students, faculty, and staff with the tools they need to transform these ideas into sustainable ventures.

Develop

Not only do our students develop sustainable ventures, but they develop themselves as changemakers who are inspired to transform their communities.
