“I’m honored to be speaking with such a distinguished panel of executives,” Rossi said. “By providing this forum where the thought leaders of the Capital Region can share best practices, RPI is helping to amplify the entrepreneurial growth of Tech Valley.”

BOSS will be held on Nov. 12, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy, New York. The event is open to entrepreneurs, executives, researchers, students, business professionals, and investors.

The focus of the Summit, Mastering the Pivot, recognizes that innovators and entrepreneurs routinely encounter a difficult question along the path of entrepreneurship: If the business climate is shifting, do I stay the planned course, or pivot to achieve success?

“Whenever individuals or groups endeavor to solve a problem, create something new, change their lives, or change the world in any meaningful way, they will encounter the need to ‘pivot,’ that may require them to change course,” said James Spencer, executive director of the Rensselaer Technology Park, Real Estate and New Venture Development and acting director of Intellectual Property, Technology Transfer and New Ventures.

BOSS breaks the mold of traditional conferences, seminars, and networking events by combining elements of all three in a fast-paced format that maximizes the exposure of participants and attendees to potential customers, strategic partners, service providers, mentors, and collaborators. BOSS has been designed to increase the probability that each attendee will leave with at least one memorable business transforming, actionable idea.
