Silos Events

Silos Events

Business incubators such as The Koffman are purpose-built to promote cross-pollination. Diverse companies sharing stories, expertise and resources provide the underpinning which allows our startup community to thrive. Likewise, community interaction is critical to developing a more robust ecosystem locally.

This is the thought behind Silos events: by facilitating community interaction of all sorts we can collectively build a thriving, supportive entrepreneurial community here in Binghamton.

Monthly Silos events are sponsored by community partners and managed by Binghamton University's Office of Entrepreneurship & Innovation Partnerships. If you are interested in making meaningful connections consider attending a Silos event. Silos are open to all and are held regularly.
