Located at Baird Research Park on UB’s North Campus, this 40,000-square-foot, FDA-compliant facility provides incubator space, laboratory facilities, educational programs, mentors, and a network of experts to support early-stage companies with scalable potential.
The UB Technology Incubator works to help commercialize the inventions of UB students and faculty, while also supporting the development of non-UB companies and contributing to the economic development of Western New York. Current and historical clients represent a variety of technologies including software, engineering, synthetic intelligence, environmental, education, lasers, photonics, and pharmaceuticals.
Since its opening in 1988, the UB Technology Incubator "graduated" 90 companies which now generate in excess of $500 million a year in sales and have created over 500 jobs. In 2013, the incubator was recognized as the top university-based life sciences incubator globally by the International University Business Incubator Index.
To be considered for the UB Technology Incubator, applicants must have an innovative, technology-driven invention.
