Do startups stick to the region where they started? The Post-Standard explores Tech Garden tenant Density as a case study

Coverage in the Post-Standard’s syracuse.com uses the example of Density, a tenant at The Tech Garden, to explore the question of whether startups stay anchored where they were started or relocate in chase of capital.

Density, which is developing systems to help retailers track foot traffic in sophisticated ways, opened a two-person office in San Francisco while keeping two other jobs in Syracuse, citing practical advantages as well as its moral debt to the incubator. Other startups at The Tech Garden have made different choices and were not impeded. 

One thing we know about business incubators is that 84% of their graduates choose to remain in-region. Density itself was a spinoff of Tech Garden anchor tenant Rounded, exhibiting another well known synergy of business incubation.
