Rochester newspaper highlights role of our incubator members in transforming the regional economy

Extending a series of recent articles touching on business incubators, the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle has published an excellent review of how Rochester’s economic future will be determined by entrepreneurial startup companies of the kind found at business incubators.

The article quotes William Destler, president of Rochester Institute of Technology, where our supporting member the Venture Creations incubator has been the subject of two other recent stories in the D&C, and which hosted our association’s annual meeting last year, bringing a small international trade delegation to Rochester.

It also quotes Jim Senall, the president of High Tech Rochester, the University of Rochester affiliate that owns and operates our member the Lennox Tech Enterprise Center and manages on behalf of UR another member, the wet-lab equipped Rochester BioVenture Center. Jim was also recently invited to Washington to participate in a dialogue on innovation and entrepreneurship.
