What’s your “Vision” of 10,000 ideas that can change the world?

Salli and Emily

In celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week, Vision, a Syracuse University student innovation club, is creating a dynamic, interactive installation called “10,000 ideas that can change the world,” on the wall of the Blackstone LaunchPad glass cube in Bird Library.  The entire Syracuse community is invited to come by, from November 12 to 18, to add their ideas to the “Vision Wall.”  The goal is to collect 10,000 ideas that can lead to positive change.  Be part of it, and come by often, to see the work in progress.

Vision, a club founded by Julia Haber in 2015, is making a comeback through the leadership of Salli Mandel ‘21 and Emily Pearson ‘21, both majoring in Environmental and Interior Design.  Vision focuses on bringing together many people with entrepreneurial ideas from different backgrounds and majors to brainstorm for events and pop ups on campus. It is known for the Bump the Mumps event, held last semester, and various entrepreneurial pop ups on campus during 2016 and 2017. Funded in the past by Adobe Creative Cloud, Vision has hosted events in the past to expose Adobe and all of its features to the Syracuse student body.

Mandel and Pearson hosted a table at ‘Cuse Market last Friday, to reintroduce Vision to the student body. They had a sign up sheet, as well a table covered in white paper, markers and three questions: what motivates you, what’s your biggest dream and what is one thing you would change in the world if you could. It was a fun, interactive re-start for the club and brought in a lot of interest with new members.

Salli and Emily look forward to growing this network of students this year and hosting events on campus. If you have interest in being a part of the Vision team this semester feel free to contact either Salli at ssmandel@syr.edu or Emily at ebpearso@syr.edu.

And be sure to come by and add your ideas to the wall of 10,000 ideas that can change the world, during Global Entrepreneurship Week, November 12 – 18.
