New York State has invested in the NYS Pollution Prevention Institute (NYSP2I) at the Rochester Institute of Technology to work in collaboration with academia (Clarkson, RPI and University at Buffalo), industries and communities on the development & implementation of innovative solutions that create jobs, reduce environmental footprint and contribute towards a more sustainable New York. NYSP2I has 7 core programs to carry out this mission including Direct Client Assistance, Applied Research, Green Technology Accelerator Center (GTAC) and Sustainable Supply Chain & Technology (SSC&T). NYSP2I also utilizes sustainability tools such as life-cycle assessment and Lean, Energy & Environment (LE2) to assist companies in developing future designs, optimizing manufacturing processes and reducing manufacturing costs and environmental footprint.

SBIR-The best kept funding secret
Merrie London
Each year the Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) funds over 2500 small businesses with over $2 billion for game-changing innovation. It is the largest federal source of seed capital for early-stage technology businesses. If you have an idea for an R&D project that you believe solves problems, has a strong market need, and would have significant impact, the SBIR program may be your “go-to” funding source. Merrie London, SBIR manager at Connecticut Innovations, will share insights into this unique federal program with an emphasis on scope and winning strategies. She will also provide information on Connecticut's matching grant resources.


Experience an actual class of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program. Learn impactful strategies to develop the mindset, tools and resources to accelerate growth within your business.

Mr. Demby will also discuss how the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Initiative operated at LaGuardia Community College can help you reach your business goals.
