SARATOGA SPRINGS — Nearly 100 people filled a conference room last week at Empire State College to learn about a three-month technology competition called Saratoga Go! It challenges individuals, small businesses and software companies to devise smart-phone apps and other community innovations to make life better in any city.

The event brought together people of all ages to network. It was organized by Saratoga Springs Commissioner of Finance Michele Madigan and Elyssa Stewart, a new-ventures specialist at NYSTEC, the technology and consulting firm based in Rome, New York. 

Any person aged 13 or older is welcome to participate in the Saratoga Go! contest. It involves “empowering entrepreneurial spirit,” Stewart told attendees. “Hopefully, that fire will burn long after this competition ends.”
