Learn With Us
We invite the special guests. You just need to come and learn. Every month we host a lunch and learn to tackle a different topic, from how to raise funds and close sales, to storytelling and marketing. Sign up for our newsletter to see what topic is coming next. Or check out our video library for bite-sized content.
Founders spend a good amount of time preparing for the pitch. We help them get in front of potential investors, partners, suppliers, manufacturers, and potential grantors by holding pitch opportunities throughout the year. Sign up for our newsletter to stay on top of upcoming events.
RocStartsNextCorps is smack dab in the middle of the Finger Lakes Innovation Hot Spot, so we know what’s going on and who’s involved. To share the latest on entrepreneur events, stories, and news with you, we help run the RocStarts website. It’s a community resource for all things related to entrepreneurship. Visit www.rocstarts.com.
We’re fortunate to have the support of regional partners that work with us and our entrepreneurs to make new opportunities available.
