Commercialization Academy & IDEA NY: Apply Online Tuesday, September 11

ROME, NY — Have a Startup in CyberSec, Big Data, Info Systems, or UAS? The Innovation & Development Entrepreneurial Accelerator, known as IDEA NY Mohawk Valley, is a business accelerator competition and twelve-month program that will incentivize promising entrepreneurs to create and grow viable commercial businesses in the Mohawk Valley region. This accelerator program is made possible by a $2 million Upstate Revitalization Initiative grant from New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo.

IDEA NY will focus on the Cyber Security, Big Data Analytics, Information Systems and UAS industries, and builds on the successful Air Force Research Laboratory Commercialization Academy – a national leader for facilitating the transfer of military technologies into the commercial marketplace.

Startup teams will enter a Commercialization Academy cohort, and then compete at Demo Day for $300,000 in prize seed funding, with $200,000 going to the overall winner and $100,000 going to the second-place runner-up.

After Demo Day, eligible teams will participate in the year-long IDEA NY accelerator program. Additional assistance will be provided to the teams through the Griffiss Institute, the Griffiss Institute Business Incubator, a Certified NYS Business Incubator, and Mohawk Valley EDGE. Participating teams will be required to reside in the Mohawk Valley region for a 12-month period after Demo Day.
