Syracuse University’s Newhouse School Encourages Students To Launch Their Own Startups
World

Syracuse University has put a strong emphasis on entrepreneurial values for their students. Specifically, the Newhouse Center for Digital Media Entrepreneurship provides the courses, coaching and connections necessary for students and alumni to create their own companies.

The S.I. Newhouse School Of Public Communications has been consistently ranked as one of the top programs in the nation across the field of media. Sean Branagan, director of the Digital Media Entrepreneurship Center, established the program in March of 2011. Since then, over 20 startups have been developed and over 200 students have been exposed to an entrepreneurial state of mind.

Since starting the Center in 2011, I can’t tell you how many times I have met alumni who say they started a business after graduation, and it’s now a part of some bigger entity or is a great, mid-sized or small business, or maybe it didn’t make it, but they learned a lot from the startup process.

I’m here at Newhouse to encourage our kids start businesses, to consider entrepreneurship as a career path and basically raise awareness of all the activity and growth happening in the startup community. Very exciting time to be here. And the media industry is bursting with opportunities right now.

The Center offers their students industry-leading courses, entrepreneur coaching and consulting, influential media connections, and access to major conferences. Not to mention a startup mentor network, which includes over 100 founders, funders, and high-level employees from high-growth startups and executives from media companies worldwide.

With the media industry constantly changing, small start-ups have the ability to take the market over by merging media principals (advertising, television, film, PR, journalism, etc.) and creating new business models, which hope to deliver and capture value. The opportunity within the industry is endless. Fresh, new content can always be produced attracting a new audience.

Entrepreneurship has been a heavily trending topic amongst universities worldwide and Syracuse University is one of the leading initiatives. They boast a campus wide selection of Entrepreneurship programs. Students are able to major in Entrepreneurship in the Martin J. Whitman School of Management or minor in a number of programs in different schools. These programs cater to students who want to take their lives into their own hands and they are offered countless resources in order to do so.

With powerhouses like Foursquare, founded by Dennis Crowley, and Marketwatch, founded by Larry Kramer, that emerged from Newhouse alumni, Syracuse hopes to replicate this success by inspiring intelligent students to go out and disrupt the media industry, while they create, deliver, and capture value.
