MVCC's thINCubator (short for “the home for innovative new companies”) is a business incubator and student accelerator located at 326 Broad Street in the Baggs Square East district of Utica, NY. It exists to help build startups and grow businesses right here in Central New York. We do that by using a combination of People, Programs and Place.
Participating entrepreneurs have access to business and entrepreneurship courses taught by MVCC, as well as mentorship from experts in business law, information technology, finance, and other relevant fields. Participating teams will have 24/7 access, desk space, meeting space, computer and internet access, server access and will have on-going coaching in a collaborative environment.
We provide entrepreneurs with the opportunity to participate in multiple programs for both new and seasoned entrepreneurs that cover ideation, creating entities, building your team, testing products and services, and acceleration. We help entrepreneurs make the connections they need to build a strong team, help them with their elevator pitches, investor pitches, and meet mentors who can help along the way.
We also provide access to our co-working facility and incubation space where they can hold meetings, meet clients, hold events and utilize our equipment which includes 3D printers, projectors, AV equipment, or just a space to work.
