Entrepreneurs in the Southern Tier have more resources than ever to help develop their businesses, including the second annual Southern Tier Startup Summit, a day-long event to be held May 1, at the Koffman Southern Tier Incubator, 120 Hawley St., Binghamton.
Over 60 teams have participated in the Binghamton regional I-Corps program since its start in 2017, with 8 teams having been accepted into the National program to date and multiple more in progress.
Through this initiative, EMPEQ, an energy efficiency project investment and asset management firm, said it will gain access to free programming and resources within the Founder Institute’s global network.
“Physical relocation including the disassembly, packaging and shipment of the acquired equipment from the previous battery manufacturing plant in North Carolina to the new iM3NY facility at the Huron Campus in Endicott, New York was recently completed.”
Empower Equity takes a similar approach to funding energy efficiency upgrades, offering subscriptions that companies need for financial and energy reasons.
After applying, AgZeit was given almost $2 million from the GBF to expand operations to a location in Johnson City and Endicott.
