OHIO CoLab

OHIO CoLab CoLab serves as a central hub that unites students from all backgrounds and embeds innovation and entrepreneurship into their lives. CoLab was founded in 2015 by Alex Kneier and Lori Bentz, now alumni, who had just completed their training as Stanford University Innovation Fellows.

The UIF program trains students to bring people together through creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship on campuses across the world, and CoLab aims to do that on Ohio University’s campus.

Mission: CoLab’s mission is to enable and empower students to live and grow through creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Through this, we hope to achieve a more connected and innovation-focused community that creates with the goal of changing the world around us. As part of a planning grant awarded to CoLab (then called C-Suite) early on, the team was able to visit universities with top innovation programs across the nation, including Lassonde Studios at the University of Utah and the d.school at Stanford to see how they functioned. During these visits, the team paid attention to what worked well, and potentially more importantly, what didn’t work. Thanks to this research, CoLab will apply the best and most successful practices to our own campus, further strengthening the entrepreneurial ecosystem at Ohio University.

“CoLab has given me the opportunity to use my skills in a much more powerful way, It allows you to connect your ideas with other people in areas that you might not have ever imagined. That difference in perspective and skillset can be so huge in getting to where you want to be.”

- Jeffery Anzo (BSS ‘20)

CoLab is hosting a blood drive this Wednesday, October 9, 2019 from 12-6PM! The American Red Cross urgently needs donors of all blood types to give blood in support of kids fighting cancer, patients with sickle cell disease and others facing serious illnesses. Type O and B blood donors are critically needed right now. We are counting on sponsors to ensure enough blood is available to support patients.
