The governor wants the Empire State to remain "a progressive beacon of light to the rest of the nation… ." Toward that end, ten higher education and private sector high-tech incubators will compete to be Innovation Hot Spots. The program will offer "inventors and entrepreneurs support to grow their businesses and be part of a tax-free zone, where start-ups will not be subject to business, real property, and sales taxes… ."
Governor Cuomo hopes the tax-free zones will attract high tech companies to the state. (wkbw.com).
