Hartwick College is one of the first private colleges to be approved as a START-UP New York site.
START-UP New York is an economic development program created by Governor Andrew Cuomo to stimulate job growth and to promote partnerships between businesses and the state's higher education sector. Eligible businesses include:
- A new company in New York State
- A company from out of state that is relocating to New York
- An expansion of a company that already has employees in New York State
Participating businesses must create new jobs in the first year, bring positive community and economic benefits, and align with the mission of the College in key academic areas including: biology, biotechnology, chemistry, geology, economics, or health care, among others. Employers must provide research and internship opportunities in addition to creating jobs.
Hartwick College welcomes serious inquiries from potential START-UP New York business partners. The tax free designation applies to 50,000 square feet of vacant property on Oyaron Hill in Oneonta.
