Statement from President Joel Seligman on START-UP NY Legislation

June 21, 2013

"I want to thank Assembly Majority Leader Joe Morelle, Senator Joe Robach, and Senator Mike Ranzenhofer for their leadership in working with Governor Andrew Cuomo on his START-UP NY plan.

This important initiative will enhance efforts to attract new companies, accelerate the transfer of promising research discoveries to the marketplace, and create new jobs. As a technological hub, Rochester is well positioned to leverage the benefits of START-UP NY.

We look forward to partnering with the Governor and the Legislature to implement this new program which will be a powerful tool for economic growth across the State of New York."
