The Southern Tier Startup Alliance (STSA) leverages the contributions of incubators and existing entrepreneurial resources in the region, and creates support services where none currently exist. By bringing coherence to a growing regional ecosystem of entrepreneurs and support organizations, the STSA strives to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
The STSA organizes workshops and programming throughout the region for entrepreneurs and budding entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs-in-Residence provide 1:1 mentoring to entrepreneurs and startups in the region. Member startups at the STSA’s partner incubators may also qualify to receive tax benefits through the NYS Innovation Hot Spot program.
