Event Description

On Friday, May 21st, we are excited to host our first Almaworks Summit to celebrate 6 years of Almaworks Accelerator.

3:30pm – 4:00pm ET: Alumni + Mentors Only

4:00pm – 5:00pm ET: Alumni + General Audience

We are hosting the first ever Almaworks Summit to commemorate 6 years since the first Almaworks cohort. Featuring a world-class keynote speaker, dozens of Columbia founders, and top accelerator mentors, we invite you to join us. We will celebrate many milestones completed by past and present Almaworks startups, including the formation of 86+ startups, raising over $30M+ in funding, and being accepted into seed accelerators such as YCombinator and TechStars.

We are excited to announce David Lee as the Keynote Speaker, previous CFO and COO of Impossible Foods and current President & Board Member at AppHarvest — a leading AgTech company building some of the country’s largest indoor farms and combining conventional agriculture techniques with cutting-edge technology to grow affordable, nutritious fruits and vegetables at scale (Ticker APPH).

This event will consist of an Almaworks Retrospective, an Accelerator through the times, followed by a 30-35 minute presentation by Mr. Lee. We will end the evening by sharing exclusive resources for attendees and how Columbia Entrepreneurship can play a role in a startup’s journey. This speaker event is open to everyone, including those non-affiliated with Columbia University. We will share the zoom link 24 hours before the event.

Exclusive for Almaworks Community:

We invite all Alumni and mentors for a chance to chat with each other during the “Almaworks Only” portion of the summit prior to the main event. This session will occur from 3:30-4:00PM ET. Please mark the registration form to register for the event.
