Director’s Note: Summer is here!

Happy July, everyone!  It is full on summer in Ithaca.  Hot, rainy, sunny, calm, windy – I am guessing you remember the saying about Ithaca weather “if you don’t like it, just wait 5 minutes!”

We are looking forward to kicking off the fall semester soon in late August and pulling new students into the entrepreneurship ecosystem!  We will put the monthly news recap on hold until then.  Enjoy your summer!
