The SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) invites high
school students to attend a workshop to brainstorm ideas for a competition that aims to generate business ideas.
ESF's Sustainability & Green Entrepreneurship (SAGE) program has partnered with the Metropolitan Development Association of Central New York (MDA) to provide instruction and encouragement to high school students interested in the MDA's Business Idea Competition.
The workshop will be held 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Dec. 13 at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo. The workshop will be lead by Marcie Sonneborn from CNY Technology Development. Sonneborn will facilitate activities to help expand and develop students' business ideas for submission to the competition.
The Business Idea Competition seeks innovative ideas that hold real promise to be successful in the market. There is a $5,000 prize for the winning entry.
Pre-registration is required. There is no charge for the event. To obtain complete event information or to register, go to esf.edu/outreach/sage/, direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or call ESF's Outreach Office at 470-6817.
The SAGE project is a collaboration of ESF and the MDA, with support, in part, from a N.Y. Department of Labor grant led by CNY Works.
