ITHACA, N.Y. — Tompkins County’s long history of innovation and entrepreneurship will be highlighted in a panel discussion Saturday at the History Center in Tompkins County.

Some of the county’s entrepreneurial history is captured in the current exhibit “Made in Tompkins County.”

A panel consisting of Tony Eisenhut of KensaGroup, Evan D. Williams of Tompkins Connect and Brad Treat of REV Ithaca Startup Works will address the key question: “How has Tompkins County’s entrepreneurial environment changed over the years and what has been the effect on entrepreneurs and on the community?”

The panel will be moderated by Larry Baum of The Computing Center.

Saturday’s program will mostly focus on the past few decades to the present.

The event will take place from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 14 at the History Center in Tompkins County, 401 E. State St., Suite 100, Ithaca.
