A New York State Center of Excellence


Stony Brook University Incubator Company Showcase
Thursday, June 2, 2016, Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT) at Stony Brook University

A joint effort by Stony Brook University's Centers of Excellence, Centers for Advanced Technology, Business Incubators and Development Centers, showcases one of the nation's most comprehensive suite of economic development programs and the technological innovations and entrepreneurial advances of the University's burgeoning community of member companies.

The Incubator Company Showcase will feature over 40 company exhibits and displays at the Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT) in Stony Brook University's Research and Development Park. Providing ample time for valuable networking and one-on-one conversations with our scope of biotechnology, energy and information technology companies, the Showcase will furthermore extend its activities to allow for individual company visits, as requested by attendees, to experience companies in their natural habitat.

The event will also commemorate both the graduation and homegrown success of Codagenix, Inc., as the biotechnology company scales up from its operation at the Long Island High Technology Incubator (LIHTI) to a new, more extensive headquarters at Farmingdale State’s Broad Hollow Bioscience Park, creating jobs and economic prosperity for the region. The company's success is a notable representation of what Stony Brook University is accomplishing on a large scale, for its member companies, researchers and entrepreneurs.
