Incubator tenants and clients figured prominently in a list of startup companies invested in by venture funds receiving support through the State of New York's Innovate NY Fund, according to a list published by Empire State Development. Among the investee companies closely identified with our member incubators and research parks are:
- Advanced Feed Technologies, a tenant of The Technology Farm, aka the Cornell Agriculture & Food Technology Park, in Geneva;
- First Wave Products, a tenant of the Dr. Bruce A. Holm Upstate MeTtech Commercialization Centre in Batavia;
- Mezmeriz, a tenant of the Cornell University Business & Technology Park in Ithaca;
- StrongArm Technologies, a student-initiated venture that has received services from both the Venture Creations incubator at Rochester Institute of Technology and the Zahn Center at CUNY/City College of New York; and
- The Worldwide App, a tenant of the SUNY Fredonia Technology Incubator in Dunkirk.
Members of our association were among the first supporters of innovation to be introduced to the Innovate NY-backed funds back at our 2012 annual meeting in Buffalo.

A new co-working space branded "dig" — short for "design innovation garage" — will open at our member the Thomas Beecher Jr. Innovation Center, which already offers both incubator suites and short-term, flexible leases on both office and laboratory space at the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
Situated in a corner of the rehabbed former Trico Products building immediately adjacent to the historic Ulrich's Tavern, dig was designed by faculty and students at the UB Department of Architecture and intends to focus on design-oriented and other social entrepreneurs, especially students recently graduated from the region's colleges. The introductory monthly rate will be $100 with day passes available from $15.

The Buffalo News has a fascinating story on three regionally focused home-healthcare startups that have banded together at our member the Thomas Beecher Jr. Innovation Center at the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. The independent but highly synergistic businesses that now share a suite at the Innovation Center are:
- Mobile Pharmacy Solutions, founded by graduates of UB's School of Pharmacy. The company intends to compete with national pharmacy chains by offering customized home-delivery services. It moved from a suburban location to the downtown Innovation Center last December, opening a retail storefront and a compounding lab, and boosting its weekly prescription count by about 50% since then;
- Advantage Home Telehealth, which remotely monitors patients' vital signs; and
- Mobile Primary Care, a team of traveling nurse practitioners.
The three are jointly marketing as a network called Mobile HealthCare Connections. Their work strikes us as a prime example of how a local entrepreneurial ecosystem can support the testing and tuning of potentially disruptive business models. The News story is here.
