The CU Grow Vendor Development Program is one of many initiatives led by the Columbia University Facilities and Operations (CUFO) group supporting the University’s comprehensive commitment to create and expand opportunities for minority-, women-, and locally-owned businesses (MWL).

CU Grow's Cohort 7 begins in February 2023. We are currently recruiting vendor participants. The program accepts 20 firms from the built environment each year, including construction trades, professional services, suppliers, and commodities. See the list of eligible types of firms. Each firm is paired with an executive coach that assists in addressing challenges and identifying strategies to continue growing their businesses.

Applications are due January 13, 2023. Apply today.

Note: The program will only consider MWLBE firms within the built environment that has a business, service, or commodity in the construction industry. See list of eligible firms.
