The Business Incubator Association of New York State, Inc., announces that its 2014 annual meeting will be held on Friday, June 6, 2014, in Stony Brook.
Our annual meeting, which rotates around the state, returns to Long Island for the first time since 2008, and is again hosted by our supporting member the Stony Brook University incubator programs.
This is the singular statewide event where practitioners of innovation & entrepreneurship-based economic development meet to talk about incubation and related activities, along with critical partners from the government, university and private sectors.
Come join us to discuss what's happening in incubation on Long Island and statewide, as well as a panel we're assembling on critical implications of "crowd" for incubation, and a perspective on lessons learned in the first year of the Innovate NY Seed Fund. Sponsorships still available. We thank SUNY RF and GrowthWheel for being our first. Please hold the date and watch this space for updates on agenda, available in draft an attachment and at the registration site here.
A block of reduced-rate hotel rooms has been reserved at the on-campus Hilton Garden Inn, first-come, first-served. To register, go here. You can register for the meeting itself below (members and sponsors, please ask us for discount code).

thINCubator (the INC stands for "Innovative New Companies") has joined BIA/NYS as our newest member, our second addition this month.
Based in historic Baggs Square West in downtown Utica, thINCubator is intended mainly to work with student entrepreneurial teams from the several colleges in the region, including Mohawk Valley Community College (MVCC) and SUNY's Institute of Technology at Utica/Rome (SUNY IT). It will also consider residence by independent entrepreneurs. Initial support was provided by the MVCC Foundation, joined by the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties and others.
The program is built around not just space but intensive instruction by MVCC, coaching by a set of volunteer mentors being recruited now, regional meetups and hackathons, and other entrepreneurial support. thINCubator is led by John Liddy, who founded the Student Sandbox, a multi-college student incubator based at our member The Tech Garden in Syracuse.

The Innovation Hot Spot serving the Southern Tier region, a multi-institution collaboration known as the Downtown Ithaca Incubator, has joined BIA/NYS as our newest member. The main partners of the regional Hot Spot are Cornell University, Binghamton University, and the Ceramics Corridor Innovation Centers (all also members of BIA/NYS). The physical incubator is a collaborative venture among Cornell University, Ithaca College, and SUNY's Tompkins Cortland Community College (TC3).
The downtown facilty is intended as flexible coworking space for entrepreneurs whether they are college or university-affiliated or independent. Tenants and clients will be encouraged to graduate and expand into nearby commercial space. The Innovation Hot Spot award carries annual operating funding from NYS and strong tax incentives for startup enterprises. Cornell received a separate capital grant from the state to support buildout of space in the redeveloped Carey Building at 314 East State Street, just off the downtown Commons.
The incubator and Hot Spot will be directed by Tom Schryver, an undergraduate and MBA alumnus of Cornell with a long record of entrepreneurial success. For more information, see the news releases issued by Cornell, Ithaca College, or TC3. We warmly welcome the Downtown Incubator to membership!
