Clarkson University's historic Damon Hall will be the future location for several local manufacturing businesses and start-up companies in Potsdam, N.Y., and the North Country. The University celebrated the Damon Hall Advanced Manufacturing Incubator grand opening this week with representatives from the Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC), National Grid, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the New York Power Authority, CITEC, representatives of elected officials and other partners, including LC Drives, the incubator's first tenant. Renovations to Damon Hall began in summer 2016 to provide advanced manufacturing businesses access to the state-of-the-art technology and amenities they need. LC Drives CEO Russ Marvin said his company is building the next generation of electric motors in Potsdam, which will be shipped around the world to markets such as marine propulsion, wind turbine generators and pumps. "What we're doing today is bringing in a new technology that is making motors dramatically smaller, making them lighter, more efficient, and ultimately lower cost than the one you have today. So at least for the larger machines, there is no reason not to be using these new motors," Marvin said. Across Clarkson's Peyton Hall, Old Main, and now Damon Hall, 93 percent of available spaces are being leased by startup or small companies, proving the demand for this type of space in the North Country. To date, Clarkson's Shipley Center for Innovation has created 147 business startups with 382 active projects currently in the pipeline from across the North Country region. "We talk a lot about developing an economic development ecosystem, and part of that is being out there and actually talking about innovation and our start-up companies. Developing a product seems like a challenge, and yet, if you've got a good idea, a support system exists right here at this hub, radiating out from Clarkson University to help you grow that idea," said Clarkson University President Tony Collins. "The numbers speak for themselves in terms of what the hub has done." "By creating a start-up campus in downtown Potsdam, Clarkson University, together with their local, state and federal partners, has accomplished a win-win scenario," said U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in a letter read at the event. "Together they are supporting the next generation of innovative entrepreneurs and building the region's economy by growing companies right here in the North Country." Clarkson will continue to collaborate with leaders in regional economic development on the next phases to revitalize the downtown campus. "The NBRC facilitates projects that revitalize and modernize essential infrastructure, increases affordability and access to high speed telecommunications, stabilizes and reduces energy costs, and positions the Northern Border Region as an attractive and supportive place for creative and entrepreneurial people as we see here today in the opening of this grand facility," said Ann Thane, director of local government services for the New York Department of State, who spoke on behalf of NBRC Federal Co-Chair Mark Scarano. "NBRC's acceptance of the application was in part due to Clarkson's continued success in incubating new technology companies through its Shipley Center for Innovation and other centers of entrepreneurship at Clarkson. LC Drives, Clark Scientific and NexID are great examples of homegrown startups that provide jobs and resiliency to downtown Potsdam and St. Lawrence County." "National Grid is excited to be part of the revival of the Clarkson University downtown campus. The company's support of the downtown business incubator concept has a long history," said Richard Burns, Manager, Community & Customer Management at National Grid. "National Grid provided in 2005 a $50,000 Main Street economic development incentive to help launch Clarkson's first incubator at Peyton Hall. Today's ribbon cutting marks a new chapter with a $300,000 Brownfield Redevelopment incentive for the renovations at Damon Hall. The company also constructed a major electric upgrade to provide capacity for LC Drives' operations. National Grid's economic development investments benefit the local communities we serve by bringing commercial activity back -- and jobs with it -- to downtowns across the state."

WTF!! In China, Universities Teach How to go VIRAL Online Like, Comment & Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFgYfz1qDWvirH6om8SBAKA Click the "SHARE" button to share with your friends! A 21-year-old student walked around her campus in China using invaluable skills she learned in class: Holding a selfie stick aloft, she livestreamed her random thoughts and blew kisses at her phone. Jiang Mengna is majoring in "modelling and etiquette" at Yiwu Industrial & Commercial College near Shanghai, aspiring to join the growing ranks of young Chinese cashing in on internet stardom. Hordes of Chinese millennials are speaking directly to the country's 700 million smartphone users, streaming their lives to lucrative effect, fronting brands and launching businesses. They are known as "wanghong" -- literally hot on the web -- and they now represent an industry worth billions and so big it even has its own university curriculum. At Yiwu Industrial & Commercial College, the classrooms for Jiang and the other 33 mostly female students are typically dance studios, catwalks strafed by flashing lights, and bustling makeup rooms. The skills taught include dressing fashionably, applying make-up, performing on camera, and knowing various luxury brands. "I like dressing myself up really pretty and take pictures. I feel like this major really suits me," Jiang said. She spent 30 minutes at lunch musing about her day to her internet audience. She was rewarded with a quick 60 yuan in "virtual gifts" -- emoticons with small digital values that comprise the main income for many aspiring wanghong, at least until they go viral. "The requests and demands for our major are rising because the e-commerce industry is developing rapidly," said Hou Xiaonan, a dance teacher. Wang Xin, 20, switched from accounting to a major in wanghong. "I have always had an idea, a dream to be on stage with the lights on me and the crowd watching me," Wang said. - Nobodies behind $7.7bn industry - The students are trying to follow in the footsteps of people like Wang Houhou, a self-described shopaholic, and her friend Wang Ruhan. When they began posting tips on China's social media about good fashion and where to find it last year, the pair had no idea that their new hobby would make them money. But soon enough, the Shanghai-based duo's posts and videos won hundreds of thousands of viewers, and retailers followed, vying for their endorsements. Like other wanghong, they are now leveraging their cyber-fame with an e-commerce fashion business which they launched earlier this month. "I would just find a very interesting item that I would wear, and I would take weird photos of it and post it on the blog, and people really go and buy this stuff," Wang Houhou said, almost in disbelief. Internet consultancy Analysys International estimated China's wanghong industry was worth 53 billion yuan ($7.7 billion) last year and would double by 2018. "A nobody can suddenly become prominent and average people can become celebrities," said Yuan Guobao, author of "The Wanghong Economy." - A wanghong is born - The patron saint of wanghong is Shanghai's Jiang Yilei, 30, a graduate of a top China drama academy whose low-budget comedic video rants on everything from urban life to relationships went viral last year. "Papi Jiang", as she is known, now has 23 million followers and product endorsements including New Balance footwear and luxury watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre. Wanghong content is typically bland day-in-the-life livestreaming that earns small digital monetary gifts from fans. But many wanghong are profoundly impacting China's bustling e-commerce as retail "influencers", said Zhang Yi, head of mobile-internet consultancy iiMedia Research Group. The phenomenon provides businesses with a powerful new, highly visual, promotional alternative and is eating into the business of Chinese internet goliath Baidu, which dominates online advertising. "Now someone will wear (the product), try it, use it, and persuade you to buy it," said Zhang, who estimates wanghong now influence up to 20 percent of online purchases. "It's a booming business. Wanghong have their own followers who can easily be made consumers of the brands they recommend." New incubator companies, formed to find and groom wanghong, are cashing in, such as Ruhan Holdings, which last year drew 300 million yuan in investment from e-commerce leader Alibaba. Wang Houhou returned from studying English literature at a US university last year to discover that attractive fashions she saw overseas were hard to find at home. Young Chinese women lapped up her playful posts about navigating Taobao, China's Amazon, and other e-commerce platforms, and clothing brands began paying her and Wang Ruhan to showcase their items.

HelloStartups, a joint venture that provides space and an ecosystem of services and advisors for teams developing innovative technologies, today announced the opening of its newest location at 68 Willow in Menlo Park. The first such facility in Menlo Park, HelloStartups occupies prime space within walking distance of downtown, 3 minutes away from Caltrain and in an area that has launched many successful Silicon Valley companies and Bay Area cultural icons. “We’ve been working to identify how the City of Menlo Park can foster innovation and nurture dynamic new companies,” said Peter Ohtaki, a member of the Menlo Park City Council. “Through ongoing conversations with business leaders, we successfully marketed Menlo Park as an ideal location for HelloStartups. We’re excited about the innovative incubator philosophy that the company represents. Teaming for success results in a better outcome than the City could have achieved alone.” HelloStartups is a joint venture between BootUp Ventures and SOMA Central, having locations in San Francisco, — and now Menlo Park — houses numerous incubators and startup companies, including foreign startup ventures and incubators dedicated to innovation in specific vertical markets. HelloStartups also provides a range of business services and an ecosystem of advisors who help startups launch, mature, and thrive. “BootUp has developed an ecosystem around startups to help them succeed,” said Mukul Agarwal and Marco ten Vaanholt, Managing Partners of BootUp Ventures. “Partnering with SOMAcentral and choosing Menlo Park for our venture made sense. We’ll have numerous incubators under one roof with one-stop-shop access to business services and the investment community, enabling them to can come together and significantly increase startup success at every stage of their lifecycle.” Ken Thom, managing partner of SOMAcentral, adds; “One example of an incubator in our space is our partnership with Steve Hoffman at FounderSpace. Together, we’re bringing exciting new business models to incubation that the Valley has not seen.” The 23,000-square foot former Willow Garage building that houses HelloStartups is part of a group of properties owned by Greenheart Land Company. Greenheart had invested in the former garage and works closely with the City of Menlo Park to ensure that its real estate investments improve the City and meet community needs. “I knew that this particular building would be of interest to many potential tenants,” said Ron Adachi, a principal at Greenheart. “Whether it’s our new apartments at 777 Hamilton, the transit oriented mixed use development proposed for 1300 El Camino Real, or HelloStartups at 68 Willow — we strive to bring value to Menlo Park.” About HelloStartups HelloStartups is a joint venture between BootUp Ventures, a full-service ecosystem for foreign startups, and SOMAcentral, a company that provides space for teams to create innovative technology. The company provides office space, business services, and access to entrepreneurs and investors to help companies launch, gain momentum, and accelerate performance. SOMAcentral also manages two locations in San Francisco that offer unique access to unmatched creativity, intellectual capital, and the relationships needed to thrive.

loyola.edu/igoforth email: igoforth@loyola.edu Last spring, Loyola launched iGoForth, our own mobile app incubator. We asked the entire campus community to open their minds and envision apps that could both capture the spirit of Loyola and make all of our lives a little easier. We received 37 great ideas, and narrowed them down to five key areas—some areas had more than one app suggestion. Idea Finalists Now it's time to build them—and we need your help. We're recruiting teams of at least three students to select an idea from the Idea Finalists, name a project manager, choose a team name—and bring their app to life. The contest will run this entire academic year—and winning teams will share cash prizes of $2,000 for first place, $1,000 for second place, and $500 for third place. Winners will be selected by the iGoForth advisory committee of faculty, industry experts, and Technology Services staff who will evaluate each completed app using the following criteria; o Usability o Does it meet the intended goal(s)? o Is it something that adds value to Loyola? o Is it sustainable? Apps that meet these initial criteria will be made available for the entire University community to test and vote for their favorites at the end of the academic year. To get involved, you must be a current Loyola student, undergraduate or graduate. We are looking for students with all sorts of skills; graphic design, marketing, project management, software development, communications, and more. If you already have a team in mind, you can sign up together. If you don't have a team, we will fit you into one.
