AN INCUBATOR

We are a startup incubator located at the City College of New York offering co-working space and an array of resources including: annual competitions, a startup bootcamp, mentorship and pro-bono services, networking opportunities, and rapid prototyping facilities.

AN APPLIED EDUCATION

We inspire CCNY students to approach their education as changemakers, transforming classroom learning into real-world application. Each semester we partner with various academic departments to create curricula to cultivate the entrepreneurial mindset. We also pair students with startups and other companies in the NYC area through our robust internship program.

A COMMUNITY OF CHANGEMAKERS

We invite all entrepreneurial thinkers to join our diverse community by attending our public events. We host prominent entrepreneurs, investors and other innovators to City College’s campus, we host hackathons, workshops and other programs throughout the year. We also encourage students to join one of our startup teams or become a part of the Center through the Entrepreneurship Student Club.
