UTICA – SUNY Chancellor Kristina Johnson visited the thINCubator in Utica on Tuesday with a keen interest on entrepreneurship.

Mohawk Valley Community College President Randall VanWagoner on Tuesday signed the National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship Presidents for Entrepreneurship Pledge, which means the college will take five action steps to increase the college’s focus on entrepreneurship.

“Entrepreneurs are critical to the New York State economy,” Johnson said.

The Chancellor, who holds 118 U.S. and international patents, is impressed with the local area and wants to implement what’s happening here across the SUNY system.

“When I go around to the different campuses and have the pleasure to meet with the individuals that are making things happen like this on the ground, I get inspired that, is this the kind of thing that we should … think about how we actually spread that across the whole SUNY system,” Johnson said.

The pledge’s five commitments include: to develop transparency of college and community assets, to create internal and external teams dedicated to entrepreneurship, to increase engagement, to engage in industry cluster development, and to create broad exposure of these commitments.
