Collaborating to help start ups thrive in WNY

Starting a business is never easy, but access to the right tools can make a world of difference. The Western New York Incubator Network is a collaborative effort of incubators and entrepreneurial service providers from New York's Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, and Niagara Counties, working together to turn our region into a hotbed of entrepreneurial activity.  We share best practices, networking, mentoring, educational, and financial resources to better assist incubator client companies.

We are designated as the WNY Innovation Hot Spot, a NYSTAR program enabling program funding and a unique set of tax incentives for companies in their earliest stages.  Our program is managed via the University at Buffalo.
