Michael Gursha ’10, CEO of Rookie Road, Talks Startup Life

Join Syracuse University alumnus Mike Gursha ’10 (Whitman and Newhouse) for a Tea Talk about “startup life” — from building a team and company culture, to finding smart partners and smart money.  The Zoom link is here. Gursha will be sharing his perspective as chairman and CEO of Portland based Rookie Road, Inc., a unique digital destination that provides the rules, lingo, and gameplay for a variety of sports. He became CEO in 2016 after serving as special advisor to the founder. Before Joining Rookie Road, Inc., Gursha was appointed as the inaugural entrepreneur-in-residence at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. At Newhouse, Gursha worked with students, faculty, and staff on entrepreneurship and innovation, lectured at schools across campus, and helped administration/senior leadership with new strategic ideas around innovation. He also co-taught a course called New Ventures in Media. Prior to Newhouse, Gursha was the vice president of strategic initiatives at Curemark, LLC, a New York-based biotechnology company focused on the treatment of neurological disorders. Gursha was one of the initial team members at Curemark and held various positions with the company. Earlier in his career, Gursha’s interest in technology led him to Google, where he spent two summers working in the new business development group at the Mountain View, California headquarters. During his time there, he assisted the team responsible for improving the Google Search Index and supported the director of business development on early-stage partnerships for Google Health. He also spent several months at Time Inc. Home Entertainment working on new product development for major brands such as People, InStyle, Sports Illustrated, and Time magazine. Gursha serves on the board of directors for America On Tech, a non-profit focused on technology education. He also serves on the board of the contemporary art council for the Portland Art Museum and is a member of the Whitman School of Management’s advisory council at Syracuse University. In addition, he serves on the board of directors for PowerSpike, a private venture backed company started by Syracuse University alumni and incubated in the Blackstone LaunchPad powered by Techstars at Syracuse University.
