NewCo Cincinnati at UC CEC

On Thursday, July 21, 2016, The Center for Entrepreneurship & Commercialization (CEC) held a session as part of the NewCo festival, currently hosted throughout North America, Europe, and Latin America. NewCo festivals have the focus of a business conference, the feel of a music festival, and the model of an artist open studio. ( Participants have spent months signing up to visit specific organizations they wish to explore. NewCo offers an opportunity for attendees to gather inside the company’s home space to learn more about entrepreneurial best practices, to network with like-minded professionals, and to engage directly with innovative, local companies.

The CEC hosted over 40 attendees from a variety of sectors. Neighboring university representatives, local companies offering services to startups (4iNNO, Power Within Consulting, Prism Marketing, and more), and entrepreneurial-minded managers from established corporations including Cincinnati Bell and Procter & Gamble were among attendees.

This session explored ways in which outside individuals and organizations can engage with UC on an entrepreneurial level. Thomas Dalziel, Executive Director of UC Center for Entrepreneurship & Commercialization (CEC) and Lew Goldfarb, Director of UC College of Law Entrepreneurship and Community Development Clinic (ECDC) facilitated an informative open dialogue on the resources available and services offered to outside entrepreneurs and business professionals from both for-profit and non-profit organizations.

Some of the highlighted resources included the UC SBI Program, the Entrepreneurship Volunteer Program (EVP), and the HireUC portal in collaboration with the CEC E3 Program. Lew Goldfarb also discussed benefits of the UC College of Law ECDC, a resource for companies to get free legal services.

“If you are seeking student talent, affordable business consulting, and opportunities to expand your professional network then the UC CEC has opportunities for you. Contributing to the growth of the #STARTUPCINCY community, developing mutually beneficial partnerships, and facilitating the success of local entrepreneurs are key priorities of the CEC,” Thomas Dalziel, Executive Director of UC CEC.
