We are really excited to be officially launching Startup Tech Valley at Brown’s Revolution Hall on October 16th at 5:30 PM. This is a great space and we are looking to pack it, so please spread the word.
The topic will be: How do you build a startup community around great academic institutions? The mission of Startup Tech Valley is to provide events that engage what Brad Feld has described as the entire entrepreneurial stack, which includes “first-time entrepreneurs, experienced entrepreneurs, aspiring entrepreneurs, investors, mentors, employees of startups, service providers to startups, and anyone else who wants to be involved.”
We want this to be the place that entrepreneurs can come to both be inspired and showcase the amazing things that they are doing. Have a business you are developing but need a first customer, a mentor, or a partner? Sign up here and we will be in touch regarding scheduling your talk.
In this panel, we will hear from individuals who have been directly involved in building the entrepreneurship ecosystem at the University of Utah and Syracuse University. Utah is extremely well known for it’s startup culture and this has been magnified by a successful accelerator within the University of Utah. Syracuse has made great strides in developing a startup culture using partnerships between Syracuse University and outside organizations.
