Grand Opening of The Center

We cordially invite you to join us for the Grand Opening our small business incubator in downtown Binghamton.  The Center: built for small business growth, provides the physical infrastructure and support system for business start-ups to grow vibrantly into the local economy.

Broome County is changing.

We're all working from a new business model and The Center is designed to provide a foundation of support so that entrepreneurs can transform ideas into viable businesses.

Come see our new space, meet our member companies and learn how The Agency is becoming an active participant in the entrepreneurial ecosystem! We'll also introduce you to our Entrepreneurs in Residence who, with specialized knowledge and expertise are bringing vital resources to local entrepreneurs. 

Through our partnership with Binghamton University, our incubator space is available to START-UP NY eligible companies and we are a proud member of the Southern Tier Startup Alliance; a regional consortium of business incubators providing entrepreneurial support and tax incentives for eligible companies through the NYS Innovation Hot Spot program.
