Join us as we kick off an exciting week in Ithaca! On Wednesday evening, April 18th, Computing and Information Science (CIS) and the Cornell Entrepreneur Network (CEN) will host the opening reception for Entrepreneurship at Cornell's Celebration, a two-day entrepreneurship conference. After the reception, we continue the fun with a panel discussion featuring Heather Cabot, author of Geek Girl Rising, along with CIS faculty, alumni and a current student.
