Stage Two: Incubate Stage Three »

If an airplane clears the trees on takeoff, it usually finds itself on course.

The Incubate stage is not about forming your company. It’s about clearing the trees. HTR offers a number of services that help seed and early-stage startups reach their destinations.


 

Business Incubation/Residence at HTR.  Startups taking up residence at HTR (at the Lennox Tech Enterprise Center or the Rochester Bioventure Center) receive ongoing coaching and mentoring from HTR staff and Entrepreneurs-in-Residence and can participate in the CEO Roundtable; plus they have access to office/building amenities and services.  Designated StartUp-NY site for “new company” tax advantages.   Learn more...
