Entrepreneurship and Innovation Partnerships

Building Binghamton University's entrepreneurial ecosystem one step at a time is at the heart of everything we do.

When faculty, students or staff make an invention, the Office of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Partnerships serves as the campus resource to help assess, protect and leverage the underlying intellectual property rights.

When professors want to bring entrepreneurial thinking into their classrooms, we're there to help. And our efforts in innovation-based economic development strive to ensure that this area, once called the Valley of Opportunity, will live up to its nickname again.

 ..."If we are to encourage and support an entrepreneurial thinking at all levels of society, we must first define entrepreneurship in a way that anyone can embrace.  If we are to shift entrepreneurship from the perimeter to the core of the way education operates, we must examine the institutional and organizational factors that inhibit the development of entrepreneurial attitudes, behaviors and skills.  We must also recognize that, while not every student aspires to manage a business or start a high-growth firm, we all want to be engaged in work that matters, to be self-directed and to have an opportunity to apply our interest and abilities to something greater than ourselves."



As a regular attender of most networking events around town, Breaking Down the Silos is, in my opinion, hands-down the number one entrepreneurial networking event in the region. What sets Silos apart for me is the caliber of interactions it provides. This is not just another mixer. "Quality people and quality conversations," is how I describe it to fellow entrepreneurs. At Breaking Down the Silos, I have not only connected with new clients and new collaborators, but moreover, I have made new friends. I also love hearing about the new businesses that are launching everyday in our area. It is impossible to come away from a "Silos" feeling anything but inspired! I look forward to Silos every month, and make room for it no matter what else is on my calendar. Not only has Silos grown my business network, it has allowed me to connect regularly with our amazing entrepreneurial community in a way that few other events do. In fact, I encourage all my clients to attend! Huge thanks to the Office of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Partnerships and the whole team who make this incredible event possible!
