Entrepreneurship NYC: The Role Of Universities In The NYC Ecosystem (entire Panel Discussion)
Pace University's Entrepreneurship Lab
Universities have long been integral to regional economic development. For example, the Morrill Act of 1862, which funded land-grant institutions, was a response to the industrial revolution. Universities also have a long tradition of contributing to the general welfare, which can be exemplified in the "Wisconsin Idea" that dates back to the late 19th century.
The enormous impact universities have on regional economies can be clearly illustrated by examples such as Stanford in Silicon Valley and MIT in the Greater Boston area. In New York City, the role of universities extends well beyond research and technology transfer. Local universities have been integral to the success of New York's 'New Economy' by playing a special role in our entrepreneurial ecosystem. This event will explore that unique role through a dynamic panel discussion followed by an interactive session with the audience.
