New York Innovation Showcase

This year’s New York Innovation Showcase took place on February 12, 2015 at the SUNY Global Center in New York City. Our sincere thanks to all who participated including the 21 incredibly talented companies who presented their businesses to an energetic and enthusiastic audience.

Our thanks as well to Chairman McCall, Trustee Spielvogel, Chancellor Zimpher, and the nearly 200 investors, corporate partners, services providers and entrepreneurs who attended the event.

We were also thrilled this year to have two great sponsors – Nixon Peabody LLP and Hodgson Russ LLP. Both firms are valued partners and we look forward to continuing our work together as we enhance New York’s dynamic innovation ecosystem.

We hope that this year’s event, just as our inaugural event in 2013, will enable positive outcomes for investors and entrepreneurs. In addition to the 21 company presentations we also welcomed David Rose as our keynote speaker and a panel discussion focused on the ways in which we might work together to enable greater capacity across New York State’s local and regional economies. The panel included Chris Reim from CDVCA, Yacov Shamash from Stony Brook University, Crystal Callahan, an entrepreneur presenter from the 2013 Innovation Showcase, Rob Malin from NASDAQ and Todd Tidgewell from Nixon Peabody. Both the keynote and panel provided the fuel for continued discussion and networking among the participants.

We thank all those who made this year’s Innovation Showcase possible and we look forward to continuing our partnership with Empire State Development to host future events focused on New York’s exciting innovation ecosystem.
