Get the Support you need to be Successful.

Business incubation is a business support process that accelerates the successful development of start-up and fledgling companies by providing entrepreneurs with an array of targeted resources and services. These services are usually developed or orchestrated by incubator management and offered both in the business incubator and through its network of contacts. A business incubator’s main goal is to produce successful firms that will leave the program financially viable and freestanding. These incubator graduates have the potential to create jobs, revitalize neighborhoods, commercialize new technologies, and strengthen local and national economies.  State University of New York at Fredonia’s Technology Incubator leverages the strengths of New York’s State University system and the businesses and communities of Western New York to provide you with the support to launch and build your business.

The State University of New York at Fredonia Technology Incubation Program will help with flexible rental terms for office space, administrative support services, business center, and assistance in the form of coaching, counseling, mentoring and networking.
