Join Quentin Rosso ’18, four-time student founder, former Syracuse University Student Entrepreneur of the Year, TEDx Paris speaker, Chair of the LaunchPad’s Founder’s Circle and co-founder and chief technology officer of Gamercraft for a Toolkit Workshop this Thursday, September 17 at 3 p.m.  Join the new LaunchPad Syracuse  Discord platform to tune in.  Here is a quick primer to get you started on our new Discord network.  Quentin mentors Syracuse student startups, as well as startups at MIT and at other universities.  He is an expert on the topics he will be discussing in the workshop.

Gamercraft internalizes the creation, organization, and production of online gaming tournaments, making it easy for amateur gamers to compete in high-quality tournaments in a fair, structured, and skill-adjusted way. The venture is based in Boston, Miami and Paris, and has gained tremendous traction since it launched about a year ago.

Quentin is particularly fluent in topics such as social networks, video games, e-commerce websites, iPhone apps, SEO optimization and web design, marketing, gamification and emerging technologies such as blockchain, machine learning and AI.

At Syracuse University Quentin started four ventures as a student, won the E-club’s top prize in Entrepalooza, and was named by the Whitman School of Management as Student Entrepreneur of the Year.  He finished college in three years as a Renee Crowne Scholar, and all the while mentored countless other student startups while working as a Global Fellow at the LaunchPad.  He also worked with the LaunchPad to create our annual Global Entrepreneurship Week and the Founders Circle, which he chairs.

Quentin continues to leverage his Syracuse University network and remains keenly focused on leaving his mark on the university’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, especially at the LaunchPad. He is the creator and chair of the Founder’s Circle, a tight knit network of LaunchPad alumni who have recently graduated and are now paying it forward as mentors.  He continues to active making meaningful connections with Syracuse alumni who are now successful entrepreneurs themselves or VCs.
