Syracuse University made a commitment to invest in the future through Invest Syracuse.  Syracuse University Libraries has received permanent funding for staff positions and programming costs to operate the Blackstone LaunchPad powered by Techstars (LaunchPad) innovation center moving forward. The LaunchPad directly impacts the core tenets of the Invest Syracuse program: it redefines the student experience by providing access to a multi-disciplinary ecosystem of entrepreneurship and innovation, and it expands opportunities to students of promise and talent.

“This demonstrates the importance the LaunchPad has on nurturing and growing the campus-wide culture of continuous innovation,” said David Seaman, Dean of the Syracuse University Libraries and University Librarian
