Emerging Talk scheduled for late March

By Kevin Tampone


SYRACUSE — The 2012 edition of Emerging Talk will be held March 29 and 30 at Syracuse University (SU).

The two-day conference is open to the public. It’s aimed at anyone with a business idea, current company, an interest in entrepreneurship in Central New York, and potential resources for startups.

The event will include food, a student business showcase, cash giveaways, and seed funding competitions for students. The conference, created by students, aims to bring entrepreneurs together to share successes and failures, network with investors, and find potential co-founders and teammates.

Emerging Talk has drawn more than 250 attendees in past years.

“Emerging Talk has become the annual event that student entrepreneurs talk about and look forward to,” says Elizabeth Ruscitto, graduate student in SU’s School of Information Studies and this year’s Emerging Talk organizer.  “Connections are made at Emerging Talk that lead to new ideas, businesses and partnerships. Students who come just to see what the buzz is all about leave inspired to turn their ideas into reality.”
