StartUp Tech Valley Reworked

We have launched a virtual community in lieu of our in-person StartUp Tech Valley events during the pandemic. The goal of the Impactful Innovators community is to create a place which supports all parts of the entrepreneurship process, including:

1. Pitches. Add your pitch to get some extra eyes on it. Include an ask to the community knows how they can help you.
2. Inspiration. We will post good news stories as we see them and encourage the community to as well.  
3. Jobs/Skills. Looking to hire interns or seasoned professionals? Have some skills and want to let others know about them? We provided a space to post your skills and opportunities as we did in the lobby at Revolution Hall.
4. Student Projects. Have a project you want help with from students? Let us know and we will help match you with instructors at Rensselaer interested in experiential learning for their students. 
5. Networking. While we know networking online isn’t the same as in-person, we are open to suggestions on how best to incorporate this important part of our community into this new virtual environment.

We are hosting the reworked community on Discord. We know there are lots of options out there, Discord offers a lot of free functionality for community support. It has the same functionality as Slack/Teams/etc. plus students are using it.  
Our plan is to provide this online setting that will be there whenever you have time to see what is going on in the startup community. This may make it easier for busy professionals and investors to stay engaged.
