AN ACT to amend the New York state urban development corporation act, in
  relation to the New York state small business incubator support act

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative  findings  and intent. The legislature hereby
finds and declares that the path to prosperity and the economic recovery
of New York state lies in job creation and in broadening economic choice
and career opportunities for  all  citizens  of  this  state,  and  that
achieving  these  goals  can  be  accelerated  by the enhancement of the
state's innovation and entrepreneurial spirit via the growth and  devel-
opment  of  business  incubator  programs  that provide entrepreneurial,
economic, and business development support and resources.
  The legislature further finds that the goal and  purpose  of  business
incubation  programs  that  include  physical space or are virtual incu-
bation programs is to develop financially  stable  successful  firms  by
providing  a comprehensive array of entrepreneurial supports, resources,
and  services,  including  management  guidance,  technical  assistance,
consulting,  mentoring,  education,  networking opportunities, access to
capital and markets, tailored to the individual needs  of  the  business
entities being incubated.
  The  legislature further finds that the concept of business incubation
and business development programs originated in New York  in  1959  when
Joseph Mancuso opened the Batavia Industrial Center in a Batavia factory
building,  a  concept that has since spread from New York throughout the
country and the world, to the extent that there  are  now  an  estimated
1,400 incubators in North America, and 7,000 in the world.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
