The Barnard Startup Summit will take place this summer, from June 17th to the 19th. Sponsored by the Athena Center and BEnet (Barnard Entrepreneurs network), the Barnard Startup Summit is a free virtual opportunity for students and recent alums to work with a successful group of Barnard alumnae entrepreneurs to develop their for-profit business ideas. From Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon, participants will learn the basics of business models, trademarking, investing, pitching, and more.
From 2020-2022, Claudia Polgar '19, an incredible Barnard alumna and entrepreneur, is representing Barnard in the Columbia Startup Lab. Follow her journey at checkpoint.health and view a recording of a coffee chat Claudia did with students here.
