Clean Tech Center receives Kauffman Enitiative award

Clean Tech Center receives Kauffman Foundation Enitiative grant

The Syracuse Univeristy Enitiative Project has awarded The Clean Tech Center a grant to work with SUNY-ESF and Morrisville State College to design and implement a summer institute for training clean technology company leaders in Upstate New York.
The summer institute will bring faculty expertise and research and development from SUNY-ESF and Morrisville State College together with Clean Tech Center entrepreneurial expertise. A curriculum will be developed that will include instructors from the three organizations, as well as angel and venture investors, financial institutions and other lenders, service providers, utilities, industry associations and government agencies providing technical and financial assistance to foster clean technology business development. The goal of this program is to create better alignment of technological and entrepreneurial resources.
The Enitiative Project stems from a grant awarded to Syracuse University in 2006 by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation of Kansas City, Missouri. This 5-year, $3-million grant is part of the Kauffman CampusSM Initiative to transform the way colleges and universities teach entrepreneurship education.
