SUNY Fredonia Technology Incubator announces new tenant Worldwide App; Sen. Gillibrand announces West Point partnership with tenant SWCSSubmitted by admin on July 23, 2013 - 7:45pm
The Worldwide App Inc., developer of a "mobile movie theater" designed for independent ("indie") films, is the newest tenant/client at our supporting member the SUNY Fredonia Technology Incubator. Founded by Crystal Callahan, a West Coast entertainment/intellectual property lawyer and a graduate of Buffalo's City Honors School, Worldwide chose the Fredonia incubator because of access to filmmaking talent among students and faculty at the university. For more information, see the university news release.
Together with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, the incubator also announced a partnership between tenant Silicon Wolves Computing Society and the Military Academy at West Point. A West Point cadet will intern this summer at the integrator of high-performance computer systems, according to a news release from Sen. Gillibrand.
Electronics manufacturer Trek will become an anchor of the Harrison Place incubator program in Lockport, doubling its space and adding 25 jobsSubmitted by admin on July 23, 2013 - 7:25pm
Trek Inc., a manufacturer of high-voltage electrostatic monitoring and control equipment that is itself one of several spinoffs from an established firm in Orleans County, will become an anchor tenant of Harrison Place, a four-building site in Lockport managed by our member Mancuso Business Development Group.
According to coverage in the Lockport Union-Journal, Trek will move from its existing 30,000 square-foot facility to two newly improved floors totaling 60,000 square feet in Building 4 at Harrison Place. The firm plans to add 25 new full-time jobs over the next two years. It may also consolidate additional WNY facilities at the Lockport site.
"Trek becomes both an anchor tenant of the Harrison Place project but also a magnet and mentor for the next generation of folks like them" in the incubator program that the Mancuso Group operates in buildings 1 and 2, said B. Thomas Mancuso, CEO of the development company. "We're very excited about this project because, in addition to attracting investment and creating lots of jobs, it has transformed an empty factory that was a blight in the neighborhood into an active bustling source of positive energy for the community."
UPDATE (8/4/13): We're informed by our supporting member the UB Technology Incubator that Trek is actually a 2012 graduate of its own incubator program!
