Staff Report From Columbus CEO

Thursday, April 18th, 2019

Columbus State University recently announced a new minor in entrepreneurship and small business. As of July 1, 2019, any student at CSU – regardless of their major – may pursue the new minor.
The minor is one of many CSU efforts to support and encourage entrepreneurship. Each year, the university hosts a business plan competition, in which students and community members can compete for an opportunity to win cash prizes. CSU also collaborates with the Greater Columbus Georgia Chamber of Commerce on ways to support entrepreneurs and currently hosts the Chamber’s StartUP Columbus program on CSU’s RiverPark campus. StartUp Columbus is a service for prospective entrepreneurs to discuss their ideas and attend workshops.
