Synergy among incubator tenants is the focus of an article on our member The Technology Farm in the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle. The story notes that the Technology Farm's new associates program is seeking to widen the circle of entrepreneurs who know each other beyond those already resident in the building. Based on experience at The Technology Farm, entrepreneurs who regularly cross paths with each other can end up buying from each other, helping each other solve problems, and jointly developing business.
Sited across the street from the Cornell/New York Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, The Technology Farm is also known as the Cornell Agriculture & Food Technology Park. For more info, see the article here. An announcement of The Technology Farm's associates program is currently on its home page.

Faculty with ties to incubators at Cornell & Stony Brook highlighted in special C&E News section on entrepreneurial scientistsSubmitted by admin on August 27, 2012 - 2:10pm
Entrepreneurial scientists with connections to two of our member incubators were among the 14 top innovators nationwide who are highlighted in a recent special report in Chemical & Engineering News entitled "What Researchers Who Want to Be Entrepreneurs Need to Know." The magazine's profiles of physical scientists who turned entrepreneurial with help from on-campus incubators included:
- Matthew DeLisa, the faculty member at Cornell who is the inventor behind Glycobia, the first tenant at our member the McGovern Family Center for Venture Development in the Life Sciences (Glycobia's entry to the Cornell incubator covered previously here); and
- Glenn Prestwich, now at University of Utah, and a co-founder while formerly at Stony Brook University of Clear Solutions Biotech, which became part of the Collaborative Group, whose corporate successors within acquirer BASF are to this day the anchor tenant at our supporting member the Long Island High Technology Incubator at Stony Brook. Clear Solutions co-founder Jim Hayward remains an active serial entrepreneur whose latest company at LIHTI is Applied DNA Sciences.
Both profiles and the entire series are very much worth reading. Congratulations to all!
