Enitiative is the Syracuse Campus-Community Entrepreneurship Initiative, made possible by a grant awarded to SU from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. This 5-year, $3-million endowment will enable the coalition of committed academic and community partners to incorporate entrepreneurship into every facet of advancing the Scholarship in Action vision throughout Central New York

Built on the belief that entrepreneurship is a powerful force for change, Enitiative maintains that entrepreneurship is the key to regenerating the promise of the area. Syracuse University, as the region’s largest university—and home to the top-ranked Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises program—is uniquely positioned to lead this effort and guide the region toward new solutions for revitalization. 

As Enitiative unfolds, the image that emerges is one of transformation and renewal. It empowers students and citizens to use entrepreneurship as a foundation to generate ideas, explore possibilities, and build working models of creative productivity. The Enitiative vision of the future includes a thriving workforce of professionals who put down roots in a newly-vibrant Central New York community. Entrepreneurship is the cornerstone of this endeavor. – http://www.entrepreneurship.syr.edu
