Corporate Engagement Boot Camp

Learning how to build the relationships that take your research to the next level.

In October of 2017, SUNY hosted a new and unique SUNY Corporate Engagement Boot Camp, at the SUNY Polytechnic Institute Albany campus. Designed in cooperation with our partners at the University-Industry Demonstration Partnership (UIDP), this two-day conference delivered to academic leadership and practitioners the essential ingredients needed to create successful and sustainable relationships. The SUNY Corporate Engagement Boot Camp provided key SUNY personnel with proven models of how to engage and drive mutually beneficial outcomes around research, technology transfer, workforce development, recruiting, and philanthropic support.


"The entire conference was engaging. As a non-research institution, however, I found the Friday sessions particularly interesting and enlightening."

– Wayne Edwards, Vice President for Student Affairs/Chief Diversity Officer, SUNY College at Old Westbury

"Very well organized, Great facilitation and interaction. The hard work and high level of maturity behind the scene was evident."

– Ram Venkatraman, Senior Manager, People Advisory Services, Ernst & Young LLP

"Met some good contacts and this type of event where SBDC presence supports the SUNY and University relationships is important now and going forward."

– William Brigham, Director, Small Business Development Center, University At Albany
