Robert Fritzinger, director of SUNY Fredonia’s Technology Incubator, was elected to a one-year term on the board of directors of the Business Incubator Association of New York State, Inc. He was also elected secretary of the board for the ensuing year.

The non-profit association has 38 members operating more than 50 physical facilities and virtual programs statewide. Its members are business incubators in the higher education, economic development, government and private sectors. The association was established in 2005 and is governed by a nine member board of directors, with a mission to expand the resources available to incubator-based enterprises, to work with policy-makers, to promote the entrepreneurial activities of incubators in the state, and to network business incubators, developing companies and other interested parties.

Mr. Fritzinger was named director of SUNY Fredonia’s Technology Incubator in November 2009. For the past 22 years, Mr. Fritzinger has been involved in the creation, development, day-to-day management, financing and sale of multiple high-technology companies, including Voice Technologies Group, a cutting-edge telecommunications vendor which he successfully sold to Intel Corp. in 2000. A resident of Amherst and Dunkirk, N.Y., he is currently chairman of the board of Zenhire, Inc., a search engine technology innovator which operates in the human resources industry along with such companies as Monster, CareerBuilder.com and LinkedIn. Zenhire has relocated into the incubator, setting the stage for full- and part-time employment as it grows.

SUNY Fredonia’s Technology Incubator offers client entrepreneurs access to a unique facility, business resources, and technology expertise as well as a range of highly qualified SUNY Fredonia faculty, technology experts, business professionals and mentors. It has also provided internship opportunities to current Fredonia undergraduates through its client entrepreneurs.
