CCNY Engineering & Science Technology Incubator

Our goal at the CUNY CAT is to encourage and support industry/University collaborations on fundamental research projects. As several engineering and science faculty have begun commercializing their own research discoveries, there is an unmet need for the placement of faculty-initiated industrial entities. As a result, our faculty must locate to off-campus commercial incubators. The absence of a local, faculty-focused incubator has placed undue financial and temporal burdens on our entrepreneurial faculty.

For this reason, members of the CUNY CAT have been assisting in the development of the City College Engineering and Science Technology Incubator (CCESTI) to address this immediate need of our research faculty. It is anticipated that, in the long term, the CCESTI will serve as a working model for the establishment of a large Entrepreneurship Center, which will meet the training and industrial needs of the New York City basic and applied-research business communities.

Features of the CCESTI Will Include:

  • Office cubicles with phones, electrical, LAN ports, wireless 
  • Locked filing cabinet, drawers
  • Meeting room with LCD projector and teleconferencing capabilities
  • Multitask, network printer/copier-scanner/fax machine

Access and Amenities

  • Membership in the CCESTI initially will be limited to CCNY faculty spinoff companies. 
  • 24/7 "white-card" key access will be given to members and their staff. 
  • Members will receive CCNY ID cards.
  • Members will have access to the cafeteria and library in the North Academic Center. 
  • Members will have a "hard address" for establishment of a New York presence.
  • Daily mail service will be included.
  • Conference room access with a reservation procedure will be provided.
  • Wireless Internet will be included.
