Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our students, staff, faculty, coaches, judges, and the community, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Entrepreneurship Showcase & Pitch competition. Thank you for your support of the Fishman Center for Entrepreneurship and the Robert W. Plaster School of Business.

Calling all entrepreneurs!

Let us help turn your ideas into reality

Columbia College's Steven and Barbara Fishman Center for Entrepreneurship is a resource to our students through experiential learning, internships, mentoring and if you win the Pitch competition--startup capital!

Why study entrepreneurship?

“Have you ever considered starting your own business? Believe it or not, college can help you accomplish this goal and provide some shortcuts to help make your conversion to being your own boss faster and less painful.”

- George Thompson, adjunct faculty

“With each mentor meeting or 3-D design session I thought I was just preparing for the Pitch Competition, but in reality I was taking the first steps towards starting my business.”

- Matthew Frappier , Student Entrepreneur
