While working at the Center, she has visited The Tech Garden, StartFast Venture Accelerator, and Syracuse undergraduate classes to provide innovators with an introduction to IP and how they can best protect their inventions and technologies.

“I am excited and looking forward to assisting the SU innovators this year,” said Stefanides.  To make an appointment for the November 14 session at the LaunchPad, first floor of Bird Library, please e-mail
