Director’s Note: Celebrate Spring with entrepreneurship

Happy Spring Everyone!  I just looked at the 10-day Ithaca forecast, and there are some 60 degree days scheduled for next week!  That definitely means “happy spring!”. And it means that literally overnight all the students will start wearing shorts and t-shirts.  It also means that you should come up and enjoy spring in Ithaca – our big Entrepreneurship at Cornell Celebration conference is coming up on April 13th and 14th.  Hope to see you then!
