Are you an entrepreneur looking for a start-up opportunity? Do you have a business idea that needs a place to grow? Or are you looking for an area with the potential for expanding your existing business? Herkimer College is poised to help you realize your start-up dreams!

Herkimer College’s campus plan for New York State’s Start-Up NY economic development incentive program includes over 250 shovel-ready acres in three business parks with full road, power, water and telecommunications infrastructures in place. Our plan features 15,000 square feet of floor space in two sections of a renovated mill building located within a mile of campus with tenant businesses already operating in it!

These spaces are ideal for a manufacturing operation (one wing includes direct access to a freight elevator connected with the ground floor loading dock) or an office environment. There is also an additional 200+ acres of property directly adjacent to our campus that is ready for development.

In addition to tax incentives offered through the Start-Up NY program, these properties are linked through our campus plan to the College’s facilities, academic curricula, faculty expertise, and student energy that can offer your business additional resources to get up and running, as well as a chance to engage in a mutually-beneficial synergy to help your business attain a higher level of excellence.

We are particularly interested in working with businesses in the fields of cyber security, crime & intelligence analysis, computer information systems, manufacturing, agribusiness, media arts and communications.

For additional information, or to inquire about partnering with Herkimer College through the Start-Up NY program, contact Daniel Sargent, Assistant to the President, or at 315-866-0300 ext. 8525.
