Empowering the New Rochester NY. Supporting the Creative Class. Breaking down boundaries.

RocGrowth Candids 2018-11-07 * Dan Schneiderman & Robert Mostyn * Innovative Makers & Gamers

Rochester is fertile ground for technology innovators. Among the “nutrients” sustaining this community is our grassroots Maker and Gamer communities. They are also deeply interwoven with activities on our major campuses.

Two of these are Dan Schneiderman, nationally recognized leader in the Maker Movement, and Robert Mostyn, founder of ROC Game Dev. While being employed by RIT, each of them has extended its reach into the community well beyond the campus boundaries.

Our guests share their stories and explain the reasons why they chose to invest in Rochester.  Their insights will enlighten and could help to frame our conversation about economic development differently.
