#GEW2016 wrapped up last week at Syracuse University with nearly 30 events over five days, partnering with nearly every academic area across campus. LaunchPad students, as well as faculty and staff in many program areas collaborated with the Blackstone LaunchPad to make the week-long festival a success. With famous entrepreneurs, alumni and student founders, funders, films, workshops, panel discussions and meetups, the event help connect across the curriculum and across cultures. Blackstone Global Fellows, and a number of international students, were instrumental in organizing events and adding global insight.
We’re already looking for ideas for next year. Send them to LaunchPad@syr.edu
