NYU announces addition of 3 incubator sites to START-UP NY zone; posts search for new director of innovation and entrepreneurshipSubmitted by admin on August 22, 2014 - 10:48am
NYU's Polytechnic School of Engineering, which sponsors two incubators in Brooklyn and one in Manhattan, has announced that all three sites are approved as eligible under the state's START-UP NY zone program. The tax-free program is aimed at attracting somewhat larger companies that will complement the existing roster of startups at all three sites, which will eventually consolidate at 370 Jay Street at the school's main campus in downtown Brooklyn. For more information, see the university news release.
Separately, NYU has posted an announcement for a new director of innovation and entrepreneurship, to which the three incubator sites report. The new director replaces Micah Kotch who leaves the NYU Poly incubator program after five years, to join the state energy agency NYSERDA as director of the $40 milliion NY Prize in community microgrids and also the agency's strategic advisor for innovation. We wish Micah the very best and encourage all qualified applicants to apply for the position.
