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.


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


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


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

"I never felt like I got involved at City College until I got involved with the Zahn Center. Here, I found a home in a community of like-minded people."

− Sharifa Happy, Prosthetiks

"It’s awesome to be around other entrepreneurs in a space where you can focus on making the idea happen."

− Daniel Gutierrez, Localtarian
