Congratulations to CNYBAC client Full Circle Feed (www.fullcirclefeed.com) winner of GreenAmerica Fall 2016 People & Plant Award! The People & Planet Award recognizes businesses for their dedication to a green economy.

Congratulations to Launch NY and The Tech Garden winning federal grant for Mentorship-Driven Seed Fund. “This award will allow us to ramp up our seed-fund activities, including doing more deals that help startup companies achieve key milestones and attract other investors, while raising more funds to fully capitalize our new seed fund,” Marnie LaVigne, president and CEO of Launch NY, said in the release (CNYBJ Business Journal News Network).

Congratulations to CNYBAC who won 2016 REDCs NYS Certified Incubator designation. With the five-year award funding, CNYBAC will implement a Medical Device Innovation Challenge – program and application available in the Spring to medical device innovators who, if selected, will receive 6 months of free space in the National Grid Creation Garage at CNYBAC, targeted mentorship, prototype development, usability testing assistance and access to Pre-seed Workshops.
