Director’s Note: Keep progressing ahead

We hope that you are having a wonderful holiday season despite the current CC (yes, that would be Covid Craziness).  As I am sure you have heard by now, Cornell and Tompkins County are in the middle of the CC storm, but I am hoping that we can all keep looking ahead and progress towards normalcy (even if that has a new definition).  We are planning for an in person Entrepreneurship at Cornell Celebration event on April 28th and 29th on the Ithaca campus that will feature our 2022 Cornell Entrepreneur of the Year (announcement coming soon!), eLab Demo Day, the Ben Daniel Venture Challenge and a slate of wonderful speakers.  Save the date! And happy holidays, everyone!
