Central New York Biotech Accelerator in Syracuse

The Syracuse Blackstone LaunchPad and Techstars has a strong partnership with the CNY Biotech Accelerator (CNYBAC) which is part of SUNY Upstate Medical University.  Syracuse University startups have greatly benefitted from its excellent programming.  This fall the CNYBAC is hosting a Concept to Commercialization Virtual Series starting September 9 and continuing through December. Sessions include discussions of regulatory, commercialization and ecosystem resources helpful for biotech-related product development and launch to market. We highly recommend it for faculty, staff, student and alumni ventures who are working on innovations in bio, life and health sciences, as well as other sectors such as medical devices and medical technologies. Innovations can be products, services or technologies, and there has never been a greater demand than now for commercializing great research and ideas coming out of universities.
