Class of 2021 members Pritika Gupta, Gareth Pembroke, and Samuel Hong are co-presidents of the Columbia Entrepreneurs Organization (CEO), a community of students who offer each other support on their entrepreneurial journeys and a network that will continue after graduation. CEO also plans a number of professional development opportunities and in the coming weeks the group will host a panel discussion on the future of healthcare startups.

After explaining the benefits of the group, the students tell us what it’s like to study entrepreneurship at CBS as well as relate the lessons they’ve learned from previous successes and failures they encountered with their own entrepreneurial ventures before enrolling at the School.
