Ben Sharf ’20 on How to Start a Startup @ Colgate

By Mary Galvez on May 2, 2018

Ben Sharf ’20, founder of Campus Coat Check and campus representative for Dorm Room Fund, can now add published author to his resume. How to Start a Startup @ Colgate, published on Medium.com, walks Colgate students through everything they need to know about starting a venture at the University. There are three parts to Ben’s piece:

Part 1: Colgate’s Thought Into Action Entrepreneurship Program

TIA is the front door for Entrepreneurship at Colgate, and most all entrepreneurship programming and resources at Colgate stem from TIA. This section covers all aspects of Thought Into Action from the Student Incubator to the Entrepreneurs Fund and everything in between.

Part 2: TIA General Startup Resources

The TIA General Startup Resources page is arguably the most useful online resource that Colgate has to offer. It is a consolidated platform full of helpful documents and links — some developed specifically for entrepreneurs in the TIA Student Incubator; all relevant to entrepreneurs launching ventures.

Part 3:  Additional Resources

Although the entrepreneur scene at Colgate is centered around Thought Into Action, the school does a great job of offering students alternative options to make sure they find the right fit in the ecosystem to be successful. In this section Ben comprises a list of all these resources to help navigate through the journey as an entrepreneur at Colgate.
