The 2012 WISE Symposium!

Hello WISE Readers!

Even though today is only Wednesday, this week was quite eventful! Indeed, yesterday was the tenth edition of our amazing yearly event, the WISE Symposium. It featured inspiring speeches from renowned entrepreneurs, a business expo, but also lots of fun, laughter and networking! We were thrilled to welcome around 1,000 WISE women (and men) from all walks of life: entrepreneurs —aspiring or seasoned, corporate heroes, students, or simply WISE enthusiasts. We enjoyed great keynote and breakout sessions from eminent entrepreneurs such as Barbara Corcoran from Shark Tank, Hamdi Ulukaya from Chobani, and Nell Merlino from Count Me In.

Wisesyracuse would like to say a heartfelt “Thank You” to everyone who attended the Symposium yesterday, took part in the “I am WISE” campaign, or helped out in any way; you guys ROCK! And to all of our readers, here are some pictures from the “I am WISE”  campaign, and a few shots from the event!

Thank you for all your support, and until next week, stay WISE!
