Senator Young Meets with Business Owners at the SUNY Fredonia Technology Incubator

Senator Young recently stopped by the SUNY Fredonia Technology Incubator to meet with business owners whose ideas have started to come to fruition thanks to the assistance provided by the Incubator. The business owners talked about what their businesses need to grow and how they have benefitted from the Incubator.

When the Incubator was in its developmental stages and before a shovel had ever been put in the ground, Senator Young worked with SUNY Fredonia officials to have the facility located downtown instead of on campus. This served several purposes, including helping in the revitalization of Dunkirk’s downtown and fostering a new bridge between the campus and the city.
