    The Future of Technology, Entrepreneurship and My Liberal Arts Education

    Jeff Knauss will present the inaugural ERIE21 lecture. A serial entrepreneur and angel investor, Knauss will share some of the valuable lessons he has learned over the course of his dynamic, evolving career, and how others can apply those lessons as they build their own brands.

    Knauss began his entrepreneurial journey as the CEO and co-founder of Digital Hyve, a full-service digital marketing agency with offices in Syracuse and Rochester, N.Y. Prior to that, he spent eight years working on broadcast television.

    ERIE21 is a bold, visionary initiative designed to address the region’s twin problems of persistently high poverty in Syracuse and the inability of employers to attract and retain the skilled workers needed to fill current job openings as well as those resulting from the looming exodus of baby boomers from the workforce. Serving as both a comprehensive and a long-term strategy, ERIE21 delivers early intervention (in the middle school grades) and provides ongoing support to students in high school and college to strengthen the region’s capacity to develop a pipeline that can generate homegrown talent to feed the growing demand for computational, software and engineering talent.
