If you would like to start, relocate, or expand a business in New York’s Capital Region, you may be able to take advantage of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s innovative START-UP NY program at the University at Albany.

Governor Andrew Cuomo and Start-Up NY

START-UP NY offers substantial New York State tax benefits to eligible businesses that bring new jobs to the State and furthers the academic mission of our University.

By situating your business in a tax-free location on, or near one of our campuses, you will enjoy ready access to collaborations with faculty, interactions with students, and the other rich assets of a major research university. Even if START-UP NY isn’t for your company, we welcome the opportunity to work with you find campus resources that can help your business be successful.
