CUNY Incubator Partners

The CSI Tech Incubator and CUNY Incubator Partners were established through the generous funding of the

New York City Council and the Committee on Technology.

The College of Staten Island (CSI) Tech Incubator provides opportunity for technological innovation and is transforming Staten Island into a leading hub for creativity, applied research, entrepreneurship and growth.  We leverage the ecosystems of technology and our academic community on behalf of entrepreneurs, the diverse communities of Staten Island and the College. The CSI Tech Incubator removes obstacles, providing entrepreneurs competitive advantages through mentors, talent, investors and the resources of The City University of New York.  We offer access to the Incubator as a learning and tactical business resource and the ensuing socioeconomic opportunity that the Incubator and the technology sector are igniting. 

Since we joined the CSI Incubator, we have experienced the dedication of CUNY and its faculty in helping my company grow to scale and stay in the borough. CSI has enabled the access to government officials, to the Staten Island SBDC - New York Small Business Development Center, Industry Mentors, and many other organizations which have helped our company in multiple ways.


Though a series of mentors from different areas, the CSI Incubator helped us re-position our products from a city app provider to a broader and more focused AI company. The new positioning and messaging have opened new opportunities for Walk and Explore.
