Community-Based Business Incubator Works for Economic Growth in NYS
We are a not-for profit 501(c)(3) and have a group of volunteers who want to change the poor economic environment found in Upstate NY. Some of our volunteers are local and others are in Los Angeles, California or Natick, Mass and as far away as Chambly, Quebec Canada. We now have companies listed that have the potential for annual sales of 1.5 Billion dollars or more. We are looking for tax deductible contributions to build CBBIC and to help launch these companies.
The CBBIC™ will eventually assist any entrepreneur that is in Upstate NY or wishes to locate to Upstate NY. We currently have companies that we are talking with and are willing to help them become profitable. Our goal is to create companies and jobs that will stay in Upstate NY and develop the economic base of our communities.
We believe that economic growth and stability in Upstate NY will only be achieved by a true bottom up economic approach. We want to identify, qualify and assist all entrepreneurs in Upstate NY as long as they agree to stay here to develop their company, hire locally, purchase locally and agree to give back to the organizations that helped them become a successful entrepreneur. The CBBIC is what dreams are made of. Except that we are the reality that will make those dreams come true.

This adviser list is a critical component to the success of the CBBIC. All of the advisers have started companies, published papers, created new technology, created new businesses and/or saved failing businesses. They have been where we are going. I would like to welcome our newest addition to the adviser list, Art F. McEvoy from Maine. I would suggest you review the brief background that we have written up about Art.
