Kinnos

Kinnos, Inc.

Kinnos was founded to protect our healthcare workers and patients. During our junior year of college in October 2014, we joined Columbia's Ebola Design Challenge to help fight the Ebola crisis in West Africa, and so the first prototype of Highlight® was born. Since then, we've recognized the urgent need to improve decontamination for both epidemic response and daily disinfection and the tangible impact Highlight® can have around the world. Our goal is to empower healthcare workers and patients to protect themselves and others, eliminate human error during decontamination, and prevent the unnecessary loss of life. [learn more]

Columbia Entrepreneurship

Columbia Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Design (“Columbia Entrepreneurship”) was founded in the summer of 2013 at the direction of University President Lee C. Bollinger and the University Board of Trustees to support, invigorate, accelerate, and motivate the Columbia community’s programs and culture around innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship.

The ecosystem around entrepreneurship at Columbia is vibrant, brilliant, and cutting edge. At the very heart of Columbia Entrepreneurship’s mandate is to find ways to take advantage of the enormous power, vitality, and resources of the entire University so that, indeed, the whole of our energies is much greater than merely the sum of the parts.
