Co-founded in 2010 by Accenture and Partnership for New York City, the FinTech Innovation Lab, offers newly-emerging financial technology companies the opportunity to participate in a 12-week mentorship program.

In late 2015, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio signed into law a three-year extension of NYC’s biotechnology tax credit. Generally, the biotech tax credit allows emerging biotech companies to claim an annual refundable credit of up to $250,000 for certain costs and expenses. Extension of the credit underscores the city’s continued policy of incentivizing the start-up and early-stage growth of biotech companies.
