Syracuse paper interviews clean-energy entrepreneur Seth Mulligan, now leader at Tech Garden and Cleantech Center

In a Sunday feature on regional leadership, the syracuse.com website of the Post-Standard newspaper included an extensive interview with Seth Mulligan, a former clean-energy entrepreneur who now leads The Tech Garden downtown incubator and NYSERDA-supported Cleantech Center incubator. Both programs form key elements of the state-designated Central New York Innovation Hot Spot consortium.

In the story, Seth speaks about the revival of entrepreneurial culture in Syracuse being sparked by these programs, and outlines the high-technology sectors where progress is being targeted. Seth currently serves on the BIA/NYS board of directors, and we warmly congratulate him on this coverage! 

Recently, syracuse.com also covered the opening the nearby new SALT Makerspace, an advanced prototyping facility in which The Tech Garden made a founding investment. SALT, which references a historically important element of Central New York business history, in this case stands for "Syracuse Arts Learning and Technology."
