The Res.Inc. program at Columbia University provides a platform for undergraduate students to build and launch companies. Each year a group of two dozen students is competitively selected to form teams and pursue the launch of a new business with the support of Columbia faculty and industry professionals.

As part of the Living and Learning Center, Res.Inc. students live and work together in a community focused on entrepreneurship and the cultivation of innovative ideas. Students participate in weekly seminars led by various professionals within the Columbia network centered around Lean Launchpad approaches to developing a product that customers want.
