CNY businesses hope Syracuse “builds local”
More than 160 locally owned business enterprises introduced themselves Tuesday to many departments within Syracuse University who could potentially buy their goods or services in the future. The “Building Local Procurement Fair” placed a special emphasis on businesses owned by women, minorities and veterans. VP of Community Engagement Bea Gonzalez says the initiative goes along with other programs the university has supported.
“Through the South Side Innovation center and WISE (Women Igniting the Spirit of Entrepreneurship), this is an opportunity for all the work they’ve been doing over the years to bring their clients into this buy local strategy.”
