COVID-19 Design Challenge

The Columbia Community is coming together to address challenges posed by COVID-19. We invite students, postdocs, faculty, and staff from all schools to participate in this design challenge. The goal of the challenge is to produce a viable design concept (could include a rough prototype, if possible) to win continued support toward the development of an interdisciplinary technology-driven solution that could be used to support the COVID-19 response effort. These design-concepts can be medically-focused or intended to facilitate life in the ‘new normal’ we are experiencing during this ongoing pandemic.


Join a select group of entrepreneurs for a two week program of lectures and learning designed to build your successful startup. This accelerated course utilizes the Lean Launchpad methodology, where you ‘get out of the building’ and talk to potential customers to discover how your technology could effectively ‘solve’ customers’ unmet needs. The curriculum focuses on customer development and emphasizes the right hand side of the business model canvas.
