Columbia Business School Program: Venture for All®

Venture for All® challenges top students aiming to develop an entrepreneurial mindset.

We are excited to offer a chance for both university and high school students to participate in the Columbia Business School program, Venture for All®.  This global initiative is for talented students who seek to develop the entrepreneurial mindset needed to succeed in the classroom or professional world. These student programs are designed to build on existing strengths to solve important global problems through entrepreneurial thinking and action. Each class blends contemporary theory and practice in areas of design, entrepreneurship, innovation, and team leadership. In a collaborative setting with peers, students work on real problems that lead to business and/or social enterprise creation and launch. Throughout the class, students refine their venture’s hypothesized business model based on instructor, peer, customer, and local investor feedback.

How does it work?

Students can come individually or as part of a class to participate in full-day (1 week) or half-day sessions (2 weeks).

Students have the chance to participate in the program all year round and in any location (Venture for All® instructors are able to travel worldwide!). Accommodation can be dorm, hotel, or home stay, and the program can include optional GPI US arranged activities, workshops, lectures, and tours.

We have our first Japanese high school participating in the program this summer!
