When the promise of Rochester’s entrepreneurial ecosystem is discussed, it is common to cite the superb universities in our area and their role in driving innovation and entrepreneurship. At a recent RocGrowth Candids event, the topic of student startups took center stage.
In a videotaped discussion, student entrepreneurs Brandon Hudson (founder of Seerwise and Rochester Institute of Technology student) and Andrew Kaseman (founder of WetWare BioSystems and student at the University of Rochester) describe the advantages and challenges of starting companies while attending college.
Also participating in the forum was Richard DeMartino, professor of entrepreneurship and innovation at RIT. The discussion was moderated by Rochester Beacon publisher Alex Zapesochny. (This video runs for about 29 minutes.)
