Harlem Biospace, developed with support from the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), has joined BIA/NYS as our newest member. Situated in a mixed-use zone of West Harlem close to CUNY City College and Columbia University but not owned by either one, Harlem Biospace was designed to serve up to 20 biotechnology, biomaterials, and medical-device/technology startups with work desks, wet-lab benches, and access to shared wet-laboratory resources.
The incubator seeks both university-affiliated and independent entrepreneurs as tenant/clients. The principal of Harlem Biospace is Dr. Sam Sia, a faculy member in biomedical engineering at Columbia who has a strong track record of entrepreneurship and startup formation. The facility is managed by Matt Owens. For more information, please see the collection of current news on the Harlem Biospace website and also the NYCEDC news release from last year.
We warmly welcome Harlem Biospace to membership. It is our third new member this month.

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!
