The Syracuse University Entrepreneurship Roundtable — a cross-disciplinary team who are the foundation of the SU innovation ecosystem, are pleased to present, “Ideas Over Ice,” Wednesday, February 20, 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., second floor of the Goldstein Alumni and Faculty Center.   The free event will be a lively and informal faculty fest to showcase innovation in teaching, research, commercialization, and venture creation.  Faculty are invited to give mini-TED style five-minute talks over hors d’oeuvres, wine/beer and non-alcoholic libations, and share how they are infusing innovation into their work.  It’s an opportunity to meet other like-minded innovators and creatives, and learn from each other, and build our collective knowledge base.  Apply to pitch here:  https://bit.ly/ideas_over_ice.

All are invited to attend and enjoy hearing about big topics our colleagues across campus are working on – from science, to tech, design, arts, humanities, media, health, nutrition, human performance, and more.  Syracuse is a campus brimming with experts and innovators.

  • What research frontiers are you exploring?
  • What are some innovations you are bringing to the classroom?
  • Are you working on solving a big problem that has potential to be commercialized?
  • Do you have a passion project that is making a difference?
  • Are you engaged in a community venture that is tackling a compelling challenge?
  • Do you have an entrepreneurial side gig?
  • Have you stumbled upon an Eureka and just want to get some feedback?
  • Is there a big challenge that wakes you up in the middle of the night, that you’re obsessed with solving?

We want to hear about these.  Share ideas and comraderie!  Co-organized with E-Table members Rebecca Kelly and Louise Manfredi, with support from the Blackstone LaunchPad at Bird Library.

Please RSVP to LaunchPad@syr.edu to help plan for food and beverages — especially as we hope to take over the second floor of the Goldstein Center for the event!
