Here are the top 5 reasons why you won't want to miss out on this event:
- The Connective Corridor: As downtown Syracuse has risen from the dead to a booming economic and cultural engine of the greater Syracuse area, we are incredibly excited to see the connective corridor help spread that energy and excitement outward from Downtown. Syracuse University and the City of Syracuse secured $42.5 Million in external funds for this project which is the largest public works project in over 30 years. Also learn more from the folks from the connective corridor about their love letter to Syracuse program and a food truck festival November 3rd. Come see what all the excitement is about.
- Celebrating the Success of Syracuse: Syracuse is a city on the rise. Last week, it was announced that over $550,000 in grants have been awarded to help revitalize and attract businesses to South Salina Street and Erie Blvd. Last month, Syracuse was named the host of the International Olympics of Culture and Art which will bring over 100,000 spectators in 2015 for the Junior games and more for the competition in 2017. Between August of 2012 and August of 2013, the Syracuse area added 3,100 jobs. There is so much progress for us to be proud of.
- Meet the people behind the movement: Believe in Syracuse has been growing since its inception early this year. This event is a great opportunity to meet our founder and members of our board who have been organizing our events and other activities.
- Success of previous events: This will be our 6th Networking Social. So far these events have averaged more than 50 attendees. We have had new people attend each event and it has been wonderful seeing Central New York residents from every walk of life come out and join us. If you're looking to make connections locally in Syracuse, this event will be a great opportunity to meet a lot of people in a short period of time.
- Make a statement: By showing up at one of our events, you're making a statement to the community at large that you think Syracuse is a community worth believing in. These events are great for those who attend and also a great way to continue to change the conversation about Syracuse. Besides they large reach that the events have online and in person, the local media like the post standard has covered them through traditional media.
