Two recent milestones from different programs at our supporting member the Stony Brook University incubator programs:
- ThermoLift, a client of the NYSERDA-sponsored Clean Energy Business Incubator Program being incubated at the university’s Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center, received a $750,000 award from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop commercial prototypes of its heat pump technology. More information from the DOE news release and coverage in Newsday;
- buncee, a mulitimedia startup that employs Stony Brook graduates and is engaged with the university’s NYS Center of Excellence for Wireless and Information Technology, is the newest tenant at the Calverton Business Incubator, taking 1,230 square feet. More information in a university news release and coverage in Newsday and ThreeVillage Patch.
Congratulations to both incubator tenant/clients! UPDATE (8/31): ThermoLift (and Solar Cool) were visited on Startup Day Across America by U.S. Rep. Tim Bishop.
