Expand your start-up within the incubator
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.
The program utilizes GrowthWheel, a visual toolbox and online platform for decision making and action planning for startup and growth companies. It helps entrepreneurs build their businesses through an action-oriented process that stays true to the way most entrepreneurs think and work.
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.
