SIPA Dean's Public Policy Challenge Grant

Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs seeks proposals from students for innovative projects that use digital technology and data to improve the global urban environment.

What does the process of launching a start-up look like?
How can I find a programmer to help me with my idea?
Can students receive academic credit for their participation in the Challenge Grant?
May I add people who are not Columbia students as team members or advisors?
What guarantees do we have that our idea will be protected? If I were to pitch this to a venture capital firm, an NDA would most likely be involved.
If I can secure financing from a VC in conjunction with this would that be permitted?
