If you have an idea that you’re ready to take to the next level, the Reh Center for Entrepreneurship can help! Work with the Center to identify – and seize – opportunities to grow your idea into a successful enterprise.

Founded in 2009 thanks to an endowment gift by Dave ’62 and Sue Reh, the Center provides experiential opportunities that establish a solid entrepreneurial foundation. Students gain advice and expertise to not only propel their businesses forward, but also learn how to work systematically – a skill that will pay off when they enter industry. The best part? Many of the student-run businesses continue to operate after the students graduate.

“Entrepreneurship is a way of life,” says Erin Draper, Director of the Center. “It’s not just for business majors anymore; all majors can benefit from this type of skill set for future success.”

Thanks to the Center’s programming and guidance, entrepreneurs create a solid network for current and future ideas. Others who envision themselves leading established corporations and organizations can gain solid intrapreneur leadership skills through involvement with two on-campus student-run projects: MoJoe and Entrepreneur Coffee.

Programs at the Center encourage teamwork, risk taking and interdisciplinary problem solving – highly employable skills that allow our graduates to make significant contributions to their companies.

Stop and smell the coffee

Stop and smell the coffee

The Center offers two campus-based student-run businesses for students interested in gaining entrepreneurial skills, which are open to anyone “who wants to be more entrepreneurial,” says Draper.

For the past five years, MoJoe has served signature drinks, coffee and espresso from the first floor atrium of Snell Hall. Student managers hire staff, make decisions on payroll, sourcing, and vendors with the hope that, eventually, they can use the profits for other students who want to pursue entrepreneurial studies.

Entrepreneur Coffee is a micro-roasted coffee brand based in the Center that uses locally-roasted coffee from St. Lawrence Valley Roasters custom-created by students and owner Tim Gardener. It began as a way to support local entrepreneurs in this region and 100% of the profits are invested into small business development. Entrepreneur Coffee is brewed and sold on-campus at Concrete Café, Cheel Mainstreet Café, and MoJoe or online at .

First-Year Experience

The Clarkson First-Year Experience is a yearlong crash course in entrepreneurship for students at the Clarkson University School of Business. If you already have a business idea, great; if not, that’s fine, too. During this course, you’ll team up with classmates, develop a business plan for a new product or service, pitch real investors for real money and launch a business. You’ll have help along the way and learn everything you need to get started in two first-year seminars: Entrepreneurship Business Innovation I and II.

The Innovation Hub is a place for students, faculty and staff to come in and play around with their ideas. Located in the middle of Clarkson University, the hub provides a central place to congregate with like-minded individuals and subject matter experts to help elevate their idea to the next level. In addition to the on-campus hub, another facility in downtown Potsdam provides space to physically build prototypes, hold team meetings, pitch investors and propel the idea to market.

“When you’re out in industry, you’re working with people from all different backgrounds,” says Draper, adding that one of the main benefits of the Innovation Hub is bringing students from a variety of majors and backgrounds together under one roof. There will be a free sharing of ideas, resources and subject matter experts who can provide patent search assistance, determine real world feasibility or assist with business, product development and marketing. There is also an opportunity to apply for the Innovation Hub Fellows Program, which allows students to work half time for the Innovation Hub while they pursue graduate studies. Those who are accepted into the fellows program receive a significant scholarship and a stipend.

“What makes the hub unique from other innovation spaces is that 100% of Clarkson students will have some involvement in innovation studies while they're here,” says Draper. “That is the real value of this new hub.”

For the past five years, the Young Innovators and Entrepreneurs Program has catapulted student ideas into business success stories. Through a unique partnership, students within this program attend Clarkson tuition-free through a combination of merit-based financial aid and the University’s acquisition of a 10% ownership interest in their business ventures. A maximum of five students per year can participate in this one-of-a-kind program that allows you to pursue your idea while earning a degree at a top-ranked university.

“One of our student participants, Joshua Parker, took his childhood passion for maple syrup and used his time at Clarkson to take the fledgling company into the national market,” says Erin Draper. “We helped Parker transition his business from a bulk maple syrup company to a real food company that now counts major wholesalers like Costco as clients.”

“This program is designed for the person that has an idea that could dent the universe,” says Matt Draper, Executive Director of The Shipley Center. “However, while their initial idea is important, it’s only a starting point. We look for the potential in the individual because when we select our participants, we truly invest in the person as much as in their idea.”

“Our goal is the creation of the entrepreneur, to push the idea of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial spirit,” says Draper. Through roughly 30 different events held throughout the year, students interested in exploring these ideas can network with other student entrepreneurs, listen to alumni speakers and see that innovation isn’t limited to what degree you choose.

Netherlands flood control

A region with a very specific character has been formed by the great rivers— Rhine , , , and Maas ( BAGS Crossbody bags Luxury Fashion AxJuFM8laa
)—that flow from east to west through the central part of the country. The landscape in this area is characterized by high dikes along wide rivers, orchards along the levees formed by the rivers, and numerous large bridges over which pass the roads and railways that connect the central Netherlands with the southern provinces.

In the late Pleistocene Epoch (from about 126,000 to 11,700 years ago), the Scandinavian ice sheet covered the northern half of the Netherlands. After this period, a large area in the north of what is now the Netherlands was left covered by moraine (glacial accumulation of earth and debris). In the centre and south, the Rhine and Maas rivers unloaded thick layers of silt and gravel transported from the European mountain chains. Later, during the Mens Silk Pocket Square Abstract by VIDA VIDA Cf1isvAV
(i.e., the past 11,700 years), clay was deposited in the sheltered lagoons behind the coastal dunes, and soil often subsequently developed in these areas. If the peat soil was washed away by the sea or dug away by humans (for the production of fuel and salt), lakes were created. Many of these were reclaimed in later centuries (as mentioned above), while others now form highly valued outdoor recreational areas.

The climate of the Netherlands is temperate, with gentle winters, cool summers, and rainfall in every season. Southerly and westerly winds predominate, and the sea moderates the climate through onshore winds and the effect of the Gulf Stream .

The position of the country—between the area of high-pressure air masses centred on the Azores and the low-pressure region centred on Iceland —makes the Netherlands an area of collision between warm and polar air masses, thus creating unsettled weather. Winds meet with little resistance over the flat country, though the hills in the south significantly diminish the velocity of the potent wind that prevails along the coast. On average, frost occurs 60 days per year. July temperatures average about 63 °F (17 °C), and those of January average 35 °F (2 °C). Annual rainfall averages about 31 inches (790 mm), with only about 25 clear days per year. The average rainfall is highest in summer (August) and autumn and lowest in springtime. The country is known—not least through the magnificent landscapes of Dutch painters—for its heavy clouds, and on an average day three-fifths of the sky is clouded.

Koninck, Philips:

Most wild Dutch plant species are of the Atlantic district within the Euro-Siberian phytogeographic region. Gradients of salt and winter temperature variations cause relatively minor zonal differences in both wild and garden plants from the coast to more continental regions. The effects of elevation are negligible. Vegetation from coastal sand dunes, muddy coastal areas, slightly brackish lakes, and river deltas is especially scarce in the surrounding countries. Lakes, marshes, peatland, woods, heaths, and agricultural areas determine the general floral species. Clay, peat, and sand are important soil factors for the inland vegetation regions.

A novel idea

Mastercoin, now known as Omni Layer , was the first to hold an ICO. In 2012, J.R. Willet, the creator of Mastercoin, published an influential whitepaper suggesting the blockchain could serve as the foundation for other applications, currencies and "smart contracts." ( He tells the story well .) To fund the development of his project, Willet promised to give 100 Mastercoins to anyone who sent him a bitcoin during the month of August 2013.

Mastercoin, now known as Omni Layer.

It worked. In the end, Willet received roughly 5,000 bitcoins -- valued at approximately $500,000 at the time and more than $50 million today -- and released about 500,000 Mastercoins. But, more significantly, he validated a new financing template for a succession of coins that would follow.

The typical ICO begins with a statement of some kind, often a white paper, that outlines the technical details, project plan, goals and budget for a project, as well as some discussion of how the coins or tokens will be distributed. (Generally, tokens are issued to represent an ownership stake in a project or decentralized autonomous organization , whereas coins usually represent ownership of a currency.)

Most ICOs fix the number of tokens or coins on offer before the sale. Investors who buy in earlier may be given preferential terms, paying a lower price per coin. But prices can fluctuate, and if more folks buy in, you could end up with fewer tokens. Some offerings have a specific fundraising goal, and may keep the price fixed throughout the offering period. Others may keep the supply fixed and adjust the price based on demand, raising as much as possible. And there are those that allow for a dynamic supply, with a new coin created whenever someone buys one.

Many ICOs have been executed independently, managed by the issuing entity on its own website or platform. That noted, the more credible offerings are now usually facilitated by an exchange or an escrow service that can afford investors some modicum of security against Crystalembellished heartshaped bag Dolce amp; Gabbana 1oWuG

Speaking of which, there are plenty of reasons to be skeptical of cryptocurrencies. But you may need to engage in some wholesale suspension of disbelief to participate in an ICO.

Exhibit A: In 2013, Jackson Palmer created Dogecoin -- the name is a reference to a meme involving Silk Square Scarf Am I blue by VIDA VIDA AB3okSe
-- in an effort to highlight the excesses of the burgeoning cryptocurrency craze. It didn't work out the way Palmer planned: Today Dogecoin has a Cashmere Silk Scarf multan by VIDA VIDA t1SNgVJ
of more than half a billion dollars.

Now Playing: Watch this: Dogecoin explained: The joke cryptocurrency worth serious...

Since then, amid the explosion of ICOs -- with more than 100 in 2017 alone -- there has emerged a comical arms race of sorts, featuring increasingly absurd coin offerings with stridently satirical names. There's Useless Ethereum Token -- tagline: "Seriously, don't buy these tokens" -- and the religiously oriented Order of Ethereum , which accepts donations of Ether tokens as atonement for sins or to purchase a station as "saynt," "prophyt," or "savyor." (The group's ICO has raised just shy of $62 to date.)
