Kingston Economic Development Corporation has won a gold rank for the Kingston-Syracuse Pathway, a collaboration from the International Economic Development Council.

The Pathway is a cross-border partnership that provides a soft landing program to facilitate international market entry for entrepreneurs and innovators by providing access to the resources needed to expand into the U.S. or Canada. The pathway facilitates cross-border academic research, innovation in the health care sector, and collaboration opportunities between partners.

"The relationship between Kingston and Syracuse has continued to grow over the years with the support from partners on both sides of the border. This unique partnership between Central New York Biotech Accelerator, CenterState Corporation for Economic Opportunity, Upstate Medical University, Queen's University Office of Partnerships and Innovation, Kingston Health Sciences Centre, and our organization recognizes the tremendous opportunities we collectively have and the strength our corridor brings when working together, especially in the health innovation sector. We are honoured to receive this distinguished recognition from our international colleagues," says Donna Gillespie, CEO, of Kingston Economic Development Corporation.
