Two newly renovated spaces – eHub Collegetown and Rev: Ithaca Startup Works – opened their doors last week to students and community members, offering many new resources for local entrepreneurs.
The spaces allow students and members of the Ithaca entrepreneurial community to germinate ideas, receive mentorship, produce their services and products, and grow their businesses.
“The entrepreneurial mindset has always been a core value in Ithaca. In recent years, however, our ecosystem has grown stronger, faster,” said Tom Schryver ’93, MBA ’02, executive director of Cornell’s Center for Regional Economic Advancement. “With the opening of eHub and the reopening of Rev: Ithaca Startup Works, local entrepreneurs now have access to a range of state-of-the-art facilities designed to meet the spectrum of needs in our community. We believe this is really a case of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts – each part of this system lifts the others along with it.”
