*Uploading Instructions:

Create a profile. If you start at your company profile page, you should see a link next to the company name that
says "edit/manage your profile." Once you click that link, you'll land on a
page with a number of links on the left hand side. Click the
"Video/Documents" tab. Once you're there, you can upload your document (the
executive summary). Choose the Private setting if you don't want the public to see it.

We look forward to hearing your ideas, providing you with feedback, and getting the Columbia Entrepreneurship community together for an exciting event!
