• Maroon and Gold Labs

    Supporting Cooper Union students since 2019

  • 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.

  • Help us fundraise!

    Join our Giving Tuesday campaign to raise $5000 by December 31. A generous donor has pledged to match all donations up to $5000, so your impact will be doubled!

  • Founding Team

    Founding team is underwriting the first year operating costs as well as the inaugural two awards. Every additional dollar donated will go towards funding additional student awards and additional programs for Cooper students
