Our Story

Co-Lab is a premier student-led business and idea incubator based at the University of Minnesota. We leverage innovation and entrepreneurial resources from the talents and passion of our community. This enables us to take powerful ventures and projects to the next level. 

Co-Lab began as a start-up itself, founded to provide a sustainable program through which students could make their visions a reality. Since our founding, we've touched students in every college at the University of Minnesota, advocated for innovation and entrepreneurship at all levels of administration, and received nationwide recognition for our work.
