STARTUP NY is a recently-created program initiated by Governor Andrew Cuomo that provides major incentives for businesses to start, relocate, or significantly expand in New York State through affiliations with and sponsorships by educational institutions within the SUNY system. In Chautauqua County, Jamestown Community College is the sponsor in the southern part of the County and the State University of New York at Fredonia is the sponsor in the northern part of the County.
The goal of the STARTUP NY Program is to attract businesses that would not otherwise locate in the State, and to retain and expand jobs by providing various tax-related incentives.
The CCIDA and the Chautauqua County Department of Planning and Economic Development are working in conjunction with SUNY at Fredonia and JCC to market the STARTUP NY Program primarily by being a repository for the most current information and by actively getting the word out regarding the program.
To that end, the CCIDA has created a local STARTUP NY link on the CCIDA webpage both as a flash screen at the top of the home page and as a static link near the top of the homepage. The webpage can be found at ccida.com.
Contact the CCIDA at 716-661-8900 if you have any comments or questions regarding the STARTUP NY program.
