The Co-Lab helps new and existing ventures by creating useful tools, delivering interesting seminars, and advising new companies. But this work provides a significant opportunity for students to get real-world experience and prepare them for the workforce.

To prepare students to be innovative doers within the workforce, we:

  1. bring together students and a robust network of industry experts (“Co-Lab-orators”) to work together on a recurring basis.
  2. teach students what it takes to make a new venture successful,
  3. give students the opportunity to prove their technical skills by working on real-problems at startups or in the community,
  4. teach students new skills and help them with their resume
  5. give potential employers and students an opportunity to work together and network .
