Tech Garden 10th anniversary: recap of media coverage

Our founding member The Tech Garden, which turned an abandoned parking garage in downtown Syracuse into a hub of innovation and entrepreneurship for the entire Central New York Region, recently marked its 10th anniversary with a daylong celebration.

Events included a pitch contest managed by LaunchNY; a food-truck rodeo on streets surrounding The Tech Garden; a tour of the emerging "innovation district" (tech corridor) anchored by the incubator and its recent expansion into the AXA Towers; and a gala dinner. Here is a recap of media coverage:

  • the official news release from CenterState CEO, recognizing a range of partners and sponsors;
  • a highly praising editorial appearing on the Post Standard's website recognizing that "[b]eyond creating companies and jobs, The Tech Garden has created an entrepreneurial ecosystem that supports startups and accelerates growth";
  • additional event coverage at public radio stations WAER (Syracuse), WSYR, and WRVO (Oswego);
  • a Tech Garden news release on the pitch contest, and special coverage by the Southern Tier Startup Alliance of the first prize awarded to Maidbot of Ithaca. 

As we have previously noted, the presence of The Tech Garden has helped aggregate for Central New York a series of entrepreneurial resources including a state-designated Innovation Hot Spot; a NYSERDA-sponsored clean-energy incubator (the Cleantech Center); a university technology commercialization fund financed by the NYS Innovation Venture Capital Fund; a pre-seed investment competition (the Germinator); an a state-funded business accelerator (GENIUS NY) focusing on data analytics.
