START-UP NY

START-UP NY is an innovative program that allows new businesses the opportunity to operate completely tax-free by partnering with the world-class higher education institutions in the SUNY system, including FLCC.

As described on New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s website, START-UP NY will foster entrepreneurialism and job creation on a large scale by transforming public higher education through tax-free communities across the state, particularly upstate. The State University of New York campus system, along with other college communities, will serve as the framework of the START-UP NY program to attract high-tech and other start-ups, venture capital, new business and investments from across the world. In addition, the START-UP NY program will help existing companies, especially high-tech firms and start-ups, stay in New York and grow.
