Collaboration Space


A critical feature of incubation is the synergy that occurs among growth-oriented client companies. 

CNYBAC provides several collaboration areas and programs to our clients and other biotech entrepreneurs and innovators.  This includes the new 200+ seat Theater in the Upstate MIND, a medical innovation and novel discovery center within CNYBAC.  The Upstate MIND also houses the National Grid Creation Garage, home of the CNYBAC Medical Device Innovation Challenge. 

Completing the Upstate MIND are four short-term economically rentable Pods each including (3) desk areas, conference rooms, and the "Collide and Cloiser" Café.
