The Hudson Valley Economic Development Corp. received an award from the International Economic Development Council for its work toward creating BioInc@NYMC, the biotechnology incubator located on the Valhalla campus of New York Medical College (NYMC).
The council made the presentation during its annual conference in Toronto. BioInc@NYMC grew out of NY BioHud Valley, the HVEDC cluster development initiative that helped market the Hudson Valley as a northeast location for the biotech industry.
HVEDC President and CEO Laurence P. Gottlieb said, “This award reflects the Hudson Valley’s role as a key international economic development center in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sector and recognizes HVEDC’s ability to create long-lasting economic benefits by creating critical partnerships throughout the region.”
“The shared resources, turnkey wet lab space and sponsored professional services that BioInc@ NYMC offers to promising, high-potential entrepreneurs and startups are second to none,” said Robert W. Amler, a medical college dean and vice president for government affairs.
