The Technology Farm breaks ground on second major building, housing FLCC Viticulture Center serving the Finger Lakes wine industrySubmitted by admin on November 27, 2013 - 8:59pm
The Technology Farm, also known as the Cornell Agriculture and Food Technology Park, has broken ground on the research park's second building, a Viticulture Center for Finger Lakes Community College. This new facility will provide a wine-making lab, grape-crush pad, classrooms, and a teaching vineyard to support the workforce needs of the region's growing wine industry. The new structure will allow the program to move out of temporary quarters in the park's initial flex building. For more information see the Technology Farm website and previous coverage here.

The Business Incubator Association of New York State, Inc., announces that its 2014 annual meeting will be held on Friday, June 6, 2014, in Stony Brook.
Our annual meeting, which rotates around the state, returns to Long Island for the first time since 2008, and is again hosted by our supporting member the Stony Brook University incubator programs.
This is the singular statewide event where practitioners of innovation & entrepreneurship-based economic development meet to talk about incubation and related activities, along with critical partners from the government, university and private sectors.
Come join us to discuss what's happening in incubation on Long Island and statewide, as well as a panel we're assembling on critical implications of "crowd" for incubation, and a perspective on lessons learned in the first year of the Innovate NY Seed Fund. We thank all our sponsors (logos below). Please hold the date and watch this space for updates on agenda, available in draft an attachment and at the registration site here.
A block of reduced-rate hotel rooms has been reserved at the on-campus Hilton Garden Inn, first-come, first-served. To register, go here. You can register for the meeting itself below (members and sponsors, please ask us for discount code).
