Join Syracuse University’s top two entrepreneurship organizations and top two founders for a Pitch Workshop in Peter Graham Scholarly Commons, Bird Library at 8 p.m. on Monday, November 8. The event, co-sponsored by eClub and the Blackstone LaunchPad features Bruno Gonzalez Hauger ’21 and G ’22, founder of Ambassadoor Technologies and Sam Hollander ’21, founder of FSCL.

Bruno is a graduate student and entrepreneur at Syracuse where he has won eight pitch competitions in addition to the Whitman Capstone Competition, in which he also took first place with his team. His winnings have totaled over $50,000 in funding for his startup, Ambassador Technologies. He also captured top place in his division in the 2021 New York Business Plan Competition.  In addition, he was the past president of the Entrepreneurship Club and is currently a Rubin Family Innovation Mentor at the Blackstone LaunchPad at SU.

Sam, recently named Program Manager at LaunchPad, has won the Syracuse University Hunter Brooks Watson Spirit of Entrepreneurship Award, first prize in the 2021 Panasci Business Plan Competition, and top place at the RvD iPrize, moving on to the New York Business Plan Competition. He was the recipient of two LaunchPad Innovation Awards, and has served as a LaunchPad Global Fellow, Rubin Family Innovation Mentor and Orange Ambassador for the LaunchPad. He founded FSCL, a social impact venture, to address the student debt crisis, winning over $60,000 for his idea. He is graduating this semester with a dual degree in Whitman and Newhouse.

The two will be leading a pitching workshop allowing students to come and practice pitching their business and developing networking skills in a stress-free environment.

If you don’t have a business- do not fret.  Come hang out, grab a slice of pizza, meet new people and learn from the pros.
