The CSI Tech Incubator, located at 60 Bay St, walking distance from the Staten Island Ferry, is a catalyst for regional innovation and entrepreneurship. We started as a small program in 2017 and have grown into a respected technology hub. We are seeking to expand our current programs, prioritizing upskilling, and technical training for entrepreneurs. Our entrepreneurial programs have served over 79 companies. Furthermore, to date, our alumni companies have raised $25M+ in venture capital funding. If awarded, we also plan to execute an MOU with NYC Innovation Hot Spot to provide additional resources to Staten Island's entrepreneurs. Our programs are successfully driving job growth in high-growth careers. The programs have directly placed 99 students in internships and 38 of those interns have gone on to full-time or contract roles as software engineers. Our workshops are highly revered within our entrepreneurial ecosystem with a total of1,157 registered participants. By aligning with our strategic plan, this funding will empower us to scale our outcomes further. Together, we'll continue contributing to the thriving entrepreneurial landscape in Staten Island and NYC.
