Two firms with international ties land at UB Technology Incubator

Two high-technology firms with international ties, both attracted in part by strong materials-science research programs at SUNY's University at Buffalo, have established U.S. footholds at our supporting member the UB Technology Incubator:

  • Specialized NDE, based in Hamilton, Ontario, will use the incubator site to provide training and consulting services to its U.S. clients. The firm applies advanced technologies to non-destructive evaluation of materials used in a wide range of industries, including transportation equipment and energy transmission and storage. 
  • Nuenz Inc., a U.S. subsidiary of New Zealand-based Nuenz Ltd., will use space rented by its WNY partner InVentures Group to address U.S. customers for its nanofibers that enhance the performance of metals, ceramics and composites. More about InVentures Group here.

For more information, please see the university news release

 

NY Times visits Harlem Biospace incubator

The New York Times recently visited our member Harlem Biospace, publishing a story that highlights the incubator's support for bioscience entrepreneurs as well as well as its role in the ongoing renewal of west Harlem. The story also discusses the financial assistance provided by the New York City Economic Development Corporation, which also supports several of our other NYC-based members.

ThermoLift and Sulfcrete, both clients of CEBIP clean-energy incubator at Stony Brook, announce awards

Two startup clients of the NYSERDA-sponsored CEBIP clean energy incubator at our supporting member Stony Brook University announced significant recognition for the technologies they are developing:

  • ThermoLift, which is developing a novel heat pump for cooling and heating applications, won the 2014 Ultra Light Startups Future Energy Competition held in conjunction with the high-profile ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit in Washington. For more information, see the attached release.
  • Sulfcrete, which is developing technology to use waste sulfur from oil and gas refining into a cost-competitive high-performance concrete, won a $150,000 Phase I SBIR award from the National Science Foundation. Sulfcrete, a licensee of Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), plans to use the funding to contract with BNL and Stony Brook University for detailed engineering toward construction of a commercial-scale facility. Sulfcrete is also supported by the NYSERDA Entrepreneur in Residence Program managed by our member High Tech Rochester. For more information, see the attached release.

Those interested in more information on CEBIP should register for our annual meeting, where program director David Hamilton will present. 

BioInc@NYMC joins BIA/NYS as supporting member

BioInc@NYMC at New York Medical College (NYMC) has joined BIA/NYS as our newest member. Funded as a "priority project" under the Mid-Hudson Regional Economic Development Council, BioInc is the only university-affiliated wet-lab biosciences business incubator in the Hudson Valley between Albany and New York City. This is a region that has considerable private-sector bioscience activity and that the Hudson Valley Economic Development Corporation is now branding as BioHud Valley.

Slated to open shortly at 4,500 square feet and targeted ultimately for 10,000 square feet, BioInc represents a cornerstone of the reinvention of a 122,000 square-foot building formerly occupied by an independent cancer prevention institute on the Westchester County grounds in Valhalla. The incubator's neighbors include a training center operated by SUNY Westchester Community College, the basic science complex and other assets of NYMC, the Westchester Medical Center, and the Westchester County Department of Laboratories, a forensic and public-health resource to county government.
