WHAT IS THE KOFFMAN INCUBATOR?

 

The Koffman Southern Tier Incubator is 35,000 square-feet of offices, high-tech labs, wet labs, dry labs, common areas as well as co-working spaces that encourage collaboration between its members. We provide workspace, mentoring and a host of other resources to our member companies.

To facilitate ease of access, the Small Business Development Center and the Trade Adjustment Assistance Center are housed within the incubator to assist companies. Programs are available to guide the growth of your business.

Testimonials

“First-time entrepreneurs lack the seasoning to captain a steady ship through turbulent waters. My friends & family helped me a lot, but looking back, the turning point of our startup was after we got incubated at Entrepreneurship & Innovation Partnership at Binghamton University. Apart from incubation space, the community mixers, investor meetups and on-site mentoring played a major role in helping us navigate through the turbulent waters.”
