Launch Party Set

 

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Beginning with a launch party April 6 at SUNY Empire State College, Saratoga Go! will be a three-month competition challenging individuals, small businesses, and software companies to create community innovations that will improve the quality of life for residents, businesses, institutions or visitors in any city.

The launch event has been scheduled for 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the college’s 113 West Avenue location. It will be an opportunity for participants, community members, and key stakeholders to connect with each other, while also learning more about the competition.

Saratoga Go! is being modeled on the New York City BigApps competition, which challenges tech experts to apply their know-how to improving the Big Apple.

The community partnership, led by IgniteU NY (and supported by technology consulting firm NYSTEC), includes the City of Saratoga Springs and SUNY Empire State College. Anyone 13 or older who lives in the United States can join the competition.
