Point Positive, Inc., in collaboration with Clarkson’s Shipley Center for Innovation, will hold a series of Business Ideation Workshops to help individuals interested in starting their businesses.  These workshops will help aspiring entrepreneurs identify promising ideas and map out the steps for moving forward.

Through this workshop, entrepreneurs will also gain access to resources, professional services, and ongoing mentoring to assist in the launch and growth of their business. Five locations will host a 2-hour session and conclude with a networking / social hour and one-on-one meetings if desired.

Each location and workshop will be led by staff from the Shipley Center and Point Positive. The five locations throughout the Greater Adirondack region include Canton, Ticonderoga, Plattsburgh, Lowville, and Lake Placid. The following are the confirmed dates for the first three sessions. The other locations and workshop dates will be forthcoming.

  • July 20, 1:00 pm at the Best Western in Canton, NY, delivered in collaboration with the Canton Small Business Development Center.

  • August 25, 1:00 pm at the North Country Community College campus in Ticonderoga delivered in collaboration with the Ti-Alliance.

The Business Ideation Workshop Series project is made possible by the generous support from Adirondack Foundation’s Generous Acts Program. The grant is being co-funded in part by the Rhoades Family Fund at Adirondack Foundation.
