Our Mission

Our mission is to dramatically improve the economic mobility of CUNY students through entrepreneurship while stimulating business growth and economic development in New York City.

CUNY Startups launched in 2014 as a CUNY program to provide central entrepreneurship resources to all 270,000 students across the 25 colleges. We are located at Baruch College, one of ten senior colleges at CUNY, where a dynamic community educates one of the most diverse student populations in the US.

Through our three programs: Startup Accelerator, Ideas 2 Impact, and Hackathon we foster diverse student and volunteer engagement through broad and meaningful recruitment and outreach to traditionally marginalized groups. Students learn the skills they need to propel their careers through a combination of instruction, mentorship and practice.

Ideas 2 Impact Demo Day

Our Programs

The top 13 startups across the whole CUNY system participate in a 13 week bootcamp. With the help of mentors, investors, workshops and staff, we help startups go from prototype to launch.

Ideas 2 Action helps make your idea a reality! Through a mix of lectures, professional mentoring, and real world projects, you will refine, test and pitch your idea in the real world.
