Inquire about Cultivator

Thank you for your interest in Cultivator, an early-stage startup support program powered by the University at Buffalo. Please complete this form to tell us what you're working on, and we'll see how we can help.  


Cultivator is designed for early-stage startups located in Western New York (Erie, Niagara, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Allegany counties) that are medium- to high-growth*. No prior affiliation with UB is required.

*Medium- to high-growth means companies developing products or platforms that aim to serve national or international markets, like software or innovative manufactured goods. While small businesses with a local or regional focus play a very important role in our community, they are not a fit for Cultivator (e.g. most brick and mortar stores, restaurants, etc.).
