MVCC launching student business incubator in Utica
UTICA, N.Y.(WKTV)- Utica has been grappling with the problem of retaining college students after they graduate.

The "Thinkubator" should think about this.
The key to keeping college graduates here is to provide them with good jobs. You get good jobs when the business climate lends itself to business making a profit. With high taxes, over-the-top regulation and union domination in New York, it's just not a good place to do business.

Programs like the "Thinkubator" are in the end a waste because they are not realistic in their thinking.

If they are looking for topics the start here:
Businesses exist to make money. How can we facilitate that?

Otherwise, let's all sit an a drum circle, hold hands and sing Kumbaya. It'll have the same effect as the "Thinkubator".

I wonder how many students from Hamilton college, UC, SUNY, and mvcc that graduate and actually stay in the utica area? I would say it's an extremely low percentage.

There was a guy in Rome, that briefed the then mayor of Rome on this idea, 4 years ago. It never flew, not because of the Mayor, but because there was no backing from local businesses. All the good Romas were looking for $$ that they could make. Now Utica has' one upped' Rome...(again?). In any event, I hope it goes. And for you folks that talk about creating 'jobs'..it's not jobs that we need, it's Opportunity. opportunity creates jobs, not the other way around.

They go into the hooker joint and think while they are getting off. The brain works better when stress is relieved. See, you people have to figure this stuff ouy.
