Fostering Entrepreneurship in the Southern Tier
WHAT IS THE KOFFMAN INCUBATOR?
The Koffman Southern Tier Incubator is 35,000 square-feet of offices, high-tech labs and a multitude of co-working spaces that encourage collaboration between members. Through partnership with Binghamton University, programming, mentoring and a host of other resources are provided to promote startup success.
BUILT FOR SMALL BUSINESS
The Koffman Incubator is unique in that it offers a total of 33 offices and labs to startup companies who wish to grow in a supportive and diverse business ecosystem. Those who wish to utilize the resources but don’t need a permanent office can join as a co-working member.
In addition to a purpose-built space, member companies have access to financial, legal and regulatory resources and services. 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.
Member companies are working hard to make a positive impact on the local community and the world as a whole. Ranging from nanotechnologies to microgreens, a full breadth of skill is housed in the Koffman. The ecosystem fostered by the Koffman Southern Tier Incubator allows for a unique interaction, breaking down the barriers between both company and individuals.
