Press Release

Thursday, July 19, 2018 - 2:52pm
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that IndieBio, the world's leading bio-accelerator, is expected to open in New York City in 2019. IndieBio will provide life science start-ups with the tools, resources, network and expertise needed to commercialize their discoveries. IndieBio, a highly experienced and well-regarded accelerator run by SOSV, one of the world's most active venture capital firms, was chosen by Empire State Development following a competitive Request for Proposals to serve the needs of early-stage life science companies and boost New York's ability to capture and retain New York-bred life science innovation. "New York is proud to be on the forefront of science and technology, creating jobs, driving economic growth and spurring cutting edge research and development," Governor Cuomo said. "By welcoming IndieBio to New York, we are taking a major step forward to ensure that this state remains a global leader for the rapidly growing life science industry." New York is committed to catalyzing the growth of a world-class life sciences hub in the Empire State that harnesses and commercializes New York's vast academic resources and research into new economic growth and good-paying jobs across skill and experience levels.  New York State will invest up to $25 million over five years through the Life Sciences Initiative to support IndieBio's work connecting science entrepreneurs with the tools and resources needed to move their discoveries out of the lab and into the marketplace. By equipping early-stage entrepreneurs with top-tier educational curriculum and entrepreneurial training, access to a global network of mentors, laboratory space, and help in securing funding sources, the Bio-Accelerator will create an environment to encourage retention and growth of start-ups and talent.

School 77 Will Be First Community Solar Project in New York State to Offer Discounted Energy Entirely to Low-Income Subscribers Project Supported by Better Buffalo Fund and Developed in Partnership with PUSH Buffalo Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the completion of a $14.8 million transformation of the former School 77 in Buffalo's West Side into a solar-powered community hub. The renovated space features 30 affordable apartments for older residents, office space for community nonprofits, a recreational gymnasium, and an auditorium for a local theater company. The project was supported by the Better Buffalo Fund—part of the Governor's Buffalo Billion initiative to revitalize neighborhoods and improve transportation—and developed by PUSH Buffalo, a nationally recognized community organization based in Buffalo. "As Buffalo's economy continues to grow, projects like this are critical to transforming the city to meet the needs of the Buffalo's diverse population," Governor Cuomo said. "The unique renovation of School 77 will not only provide low-cost senior living and a central hub for the West Side, but will serve as a model for community solar projects that promote clean energy across this state and the nation." "As Buffalo continues to experience a transformation with unprecedented economic development investments and projects, New York is continuing to develop affordable housing for residents," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. "This solar-powered project on the city's West Side will provide efficient housing for Buffalo's older residents and a new space for community development and growth."
