Support for Entrepreneurs
CEG leads many collaborative efforts with regional businesses, institutions, incubators, universities and investors towards developing a gap-free entrepreneurship pipeline to support our local entrepreneurship ecosystem.
CEG continues to grow this ecosystem by:
- Improving start-ups access to labs, office space, and other facilities
- Providing opportunities for start-ups to showcase a business idea before professional and angel investors
- Identifying potential investors, mentors, and resources
- Engaging high school, college students, and researchers in forums that support the next generation of business and technology.
VentureB Plan Series
CEG and our partners have worked with hundreds of start-ups to coach their team for a venture pitch that culminates in an open public pitch to investors and business leaders.
CEG facilitates hands on workshops to better prepare start-ups for building a solid foundation for their business model, product development, and operational plans.
HS Business Model Competition
Our annual New York State High School Business Model Competition attracts over 70 students offering high school students an opportunity to showcase their business plan in an educationally-competitive environment.
