Chautauqua County IDA and planning department will collocate staff with the SUNY Fredonia Technology Incubator/START-UP zone

The SUNY Fredonia Technology Incubator will host one office of the County of Chautauqua Industrial Development Agency (CCIDA), and also part of the county planning department. This collocation of economic-development functions in the northern part of the county is intended to advance the state-designated START-UP NY zone on which SUNY Fredonia cooperates with Jamestown Community College in the southern part of the county. The Fredonia incubator is also a partner in the Western New York Innovation Hot Spot. For more information, please see the university news release

NYSERDA case study describes Directed Energy incubator's creative use of purchasing power to accelerate Isolation Sciences

The first 30 energy-efficient laboratory fume hoods manufactured by Isolation Sciences were produced on order from the NYSERDA-sponsored Directed Energy incubator at our member University at Buffalo. Isolation Sciences is a non-resident client of Directed Energy, based nearby. An excellent case study published on NYSERDA's cleantechNYconnect blog describes this creative use of incubator purchasing power to focus the startup's attention on the final steps of the manufacturing process and on early sales.
