Business Incubation Program

Expand your start-up within the incubator

RESIDENT RESOURCES

All start-ups who become incubator residents join the Business Incubation Program, offering them access to experienced mentors. Mentors will work one-on-one with entrepreneurs to refine business concepts and expand operations. 

Program mentors have created a 7-phased program, starting with Business Ideation, working towards operational sustainability with the goal of eventual graduation to a larger/more fitting location.

Infiniti Greens

Launched by Binghamton University senior Joe Rigoroso, the start-up grows microgreens, mini versions of full-grown vegetables, in a variety of flavors.  

Customers include local restaurants and patrons of the Broome County Regional Farmers Market, where Rigoroso sells every Saturday morning. 

“[The reaction] has been overwhelmingly positive,” Rigoroso said in a recent interview. “People are pretty happy that there are more local greens being produced and that a student is staying in Binghamton with their business.”

As a member of the Business Incubation Program, Infiniti Greens maintains a wet lab at the Koffman Southern Tier Incubator. Rigoroso has access to all of the incubator’s resources, including experienced mentors and an environment of entrepreneurship.
