I’m in a very fortunate position. I sit at a waypoint for student entrepreneurs, supporting (excitable) faculty, and local business owners. I work for a company called Enitiative.
The non-profit started in 2007 with a $3 million grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. Enitiative was given 5 years to connect the entrepreneurial dots. We and Kauffman both knew that Central New York buzzed with entrepreneurs just beneath its surface. Small business, dorm-room companies, business plan competitions, incubators – CNY had all the necessary tools, it just needed a waypoint.
Enitiative is a vital, local resource that many people don’t realize is waiting in the wings. We work with 7 local colleges. We connect students. We build business. We find funding. Now, we’re pouring our resources into our new website.
If you have a few moments, I’d love it if you’d visit us. We are here to help.
