Director’s Note: Best Wishes to Class of ’22

Happy Summer 2022!  Cornell’s graduation is always on Memorial Day Weekend, and each year we see a wonderful group of entrepreneurs leaving Cornell to continue on their startup journeys. We will continue to support them (although not nearly as much as when they were students), but they are definitely leaving the nest!  We are already looking forward to having some back as guest speakers 😊. A heartfelt “bon voyage” to the Class of 2022!
