About our Partner
City Startup Labs (CSL) has a mission of reimaging African American millennials (Black Adults 18-34 yrs.) as a new class of entrepreneurs and innovators. They have recently assumed an expanded mission to address returning citizens (formerly incarcerated) as well.
CSL runs the Center of Excellence for Entrepreneurial Competency, Innovation and Leadership (CoE) as an accelerator/incubator hybrid model. The model uses a blended approach, which includes classroom instruction, digital materials, peer-to-peer assignments, and topic-specific guest speakers.
