  • BLUEPRINT Accelerator Network Seen as a Resource for Early-Stage Companies

    Key to the New York metro area becoming a successful biotech cluster is the availability of affordable lab space for the region's innovators in biotechnology and life sciences. That’s why a group of post-doctoral researchers from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai formed the nonprofit organization, Keystone for Incubating Innovation of Life Sciences (KiiLN). They are aggressively seeking space for prospective entrepreneurs as they nurture the biotech innovation in New York City and beyond. And that’s why the Westchester County Association—advocates for the region's growth as a healthcare innovation hub—met with KiiLN’s principals to discuss how the organizations could work together to support life science entrepreneurship.

  • New Data Show Slowing of Young Professionals’ Exodus


  • We’re seeing progress in finding ways to retain young, educated workers, but more can be done!

    What a difference a few months make! The news about young people leaving Westchester County’s wealthiest towns in droves, released in a report by Community Housing Innovations last February, has improved.
