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.
