  • What We Do

    Maroon and Gold Labs is a non-profit corporation that is designed to incubate ideas created by Cooper Union students, staff, faculty and alumni. Cooper teams are mentored and compensated as they refine ideas. Preference will be given to interdisciplinary teams.

  • How It Works

    Cooper teams apply to the program with an idea for a new venture. Teams that are accepted into the lab will develop their idea while receiving support from alumni mentors. At the end of each academic cycle, teams will report on their progress and be eligible for continued support from the lab.
