Cornell University, Ithaca College, and Tompkins Cortland Community College have been awarded $50 thousand dollars in federal funding for women entrepreneurs to grow their businesses.
U.S. Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand announced the funding, which will be used for a business incubator to help women start and grow local businesses.
The incubator is a collaborative project between the three schools intended to strengthen entrepreneurship opportunities.
Bussiness owners will receive support from committed and experienced mentors with backgrounds in entrepreneurship, sales, technology, and marketing.
