New Contact in Ithaca. Carlos. Carlos was contacted by a fellow from the Ithaca campus, he represents Big Red Incubator (www.bri.com). Big Red Incubator assists any kind of entrepreneur in all sorts of ways that an Ivy League campus might be able to help. Entrepreneurs can get help from professionals in all kinds of disciplines such as law, engineering, financing, marketing, etc. Some of the staff is full time and some consists of students from Cornell's variance grad schools. Carlos was contacted so as to align some of the scientific talent pool here at Weill Medical to help evaluate scientific ideas. This is an excellent gateway to nonacademic/science careers. If anyone is interested, Carlos is offering to serve as the lynchpin so as to help any interested graduate students to get to have this kind of experience without publicly disclosing the names of those students to the general academic community on our NYC campus. Please contact Carlos if you are interested in participating at any level and he can facilitate the process or put you in touch with our friends in Ithaca.
