Open for less than one full semester, the Entrepreneurship@Cornell eHub in Kennedy Hall is already housing the best and brightest student innovators that Cornell has to offer. On Monday, September 26th, eHub hosted the academic year’s first pitch competition. Three Cornell undergraduate students had one minute to sell three discerning judges on their startup idea.
On August 31, Cornell students, alumni, and staff gathered to celebrate the future of university entrepreneurship with the grand opening of eHub. eHub’s Kennedy Hall location offers 15,000 square feet for students and community members passionate about entrepreneurship to learn and collaborate. The opening continued on the morning of September 24th with the grand opening and ribbon cutting of the eHub space in Collegetown. Cornell invited students, faculty, staff, and alumni to celebrate the occasion. Located next to Collegetown Bagels, the new office consists of two floors of collaborative work space filled with glass conference rooms, whiteboards, and red, comfortable seating.
