The “Power up” room will also house numerous programs offered at the Tech Garden, including this weekend’s “Syracuse Startup Weekend.”  The program brings together innovators during a 54-hour period to share ideas, create business models, and launch start-up companies.   It begins this Friday and runs through Sunday.
