Warren County's Tech Valley Location
Warren County is located in the near the center of the 19-county region called “Tech Valley” in eastern New York. This area includes facilities of worldwide technology leaders and research institutions, including IBM, General Electric Global Research, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), and the Albany-based College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering (CNSE)
campus of the SUNY Polytechnic Institute.
A business location in Warren County gives you proximity to this area of innovation, and access to a flourishing environment of research and development.
Capital Region in the Heart of Tech Valley
In the heart of Tech Valley, stretching from Warren County southward through New York’s capital city of Albany, is the rapidly-expanding Capital Region of New York State—home to nanotechnology and semiconductor leaders and 30+ institutions of research and higher learning
Business Collaboration & Research Programs
The greater Capital Region is home to numerous educational institutions and not-for-profit organizations that regularly collaborate with the business community. The State University of New York (SUNY) system and RPI have particularly extensive research and collaboration programs:
The SUNY Research Foundation supports SUNY researchers and the organizations with which these researchers interact, including funding sources and outside collaborators. One of three areas of focus for the SUNY Research Foundation is public/private partnerships that drive economic development and entrepreneurial opportunity.
The SUNY RF facilitates and forms collaborative public/private partnerships such as business.
Rensselaer’s researchers in energy and the environment
are exploring the development of renewable technologies to enable coexistence with a bio-diverse planet; RPI's biotechnology
researchers are leading the way to the creation of life-saving treatments; Rensselaer researchers in nanotechnology
are enabling the development of new materials that support a safer, more cost-effective, and sustainable environment. Through computation and information technologies
, Rensselaer researchers are deepening human comprehension of a multi-faceted world. Using Rensselaer’s extraordinary media and arts
platforms that blur existing boundaries between observation, perception, and experience, RPI's researchers are creating environments that expand humankind's ability to learn, understand, and communicate.
For the last decade, the Rensselaer Plan
has provided a blueprint for transformation and impact. It has guided development of the campus environment for advancing research with the potential to address science and society’s most challenging problems. The plan has a specific section about Scientific and Technological Entrepreneurship
