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. 

Client Shared Equipment

CNYBAC provides access to shared equipment thanks to a grant from SUNY College of Environmental Sciences and Forestry.  Clients wishing to utilize shared equipment pay a $75.00 monthly fee – the monthly fee helps to cover maintenance costs.
