Innovation Conversation: State of the green economy

Innovation Conversation
Innovation Trail

Politicians say technology and green jobs will revitalize the upstate economy, but is that really happening? We’ll try and find the evidence when WRVO’s Community Forum presents an Innovation Conversation about the evolving green economy in upstate New York.

We'll explore  the state of the "Green Economy" in Syracuse and Central New York.  Are initiatives with green technology reinventing upstate? Are current investments working?  Join us for a progress report on the "Green Economy" in Central New York.

Our Panelists:

Nasir Ali, founder and Executive Director of the Seed Capital Fund of CNY, a private LLC whose members fund early stage tech companies.
Matt Daneman, a business reporter from the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.
Linda Dickerson Hartsock, Executive Director of The Clean Tech Center.

When: November 15, 7 p.m.

Where: Downtown Syracuse at the SUNY-Oswego Metrocenter (2 S. Clinton Square, Syracuse).

Audience members are invited to participate in the conversation, so bring questions. The event is free.
