Cooley LLP Offers Legal Services to 2011 Lang Fund Finalists
The Eugene Lang Entrepreneurship Center is pleased to announce Cooley LLP will be offering legal services to up to six finalists of the Eugene M. Lang Entrepreneurial Initiative Fund this spring semester.
Established in 1996 with a $1 million gift from Eugene M. Lang, MS ’40, the Eugene M. Lang Entrepreneurial Initiative Fund fosters an entrepreneurial environment at Columbia Business School by providing early stage investing opportunities to qualifying student business initiatives. “Cooley has a legacy of representing companies bringing to market breakthrough products and technologies”, said Mr. Bo Yaghmaie, a partner at Cooley. “We are pleased to be part of the team of Lang Fund supporters helping Columbia Business School’s young entrepreneurs reach their potential.”
The School’s Spring Venture Showcase is an event that helps select which students present their proposed business plans to the Lang Fund Board of Directors for potential seed funding. All students enrolled in the MBA Program may submit business plans to participate in the Spring Venture Showcase but only students in their last year of the MBA program are eligible for funding.
This year’s event will take place on the evening of April 27. Finalists will then prepare to present to the Lang Fund Board in early May.
