SUNY Broome to Host Companies Under Tax-Free Program

Yesterday Binghamton University unveiled five businesses that will take root on it's campus -- part of the Start Up New York Initiative -- well today SUNY Broome shed some light on it's plan to host companies under the tax-free program.

The school is looking to host companies in the manufacturing, agriculture, and high tech fields. Start Up New York is a program that offers tax-free zones for 10-years, mostly on SUNY campuses, to new or existing businesses promising to create new jobs. The school says there will be benefits to students as well.

SUNY Broome President Kevin Drumm said, "It would take their academic learning to another level. Having  a partner business to learn from that's actually doing the work they are studying, as well as their opportunity to potentially go to work for those businesses which is similar to their internships and co-ops.
 
SUNY Broome will hold free information sessions for those who wish to learn more about Start-Up New York. You can call  607-778-5012 for more information.
