The Long Island High Technology Incubator (LIHTI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping new technologically-innovative companies grow by providing them with a variety of support resources and services. Many of our services are through programs and centers reporting to the Office of Economic Development. The LIHTI is a 501(C)3 member corporation consisting of two member corporations: The Research Foundation of the State University of New York and the Stony Brook Foundation, Inc. A Board of Directors is appointed to oversee LIHTI operations. Since its opening in 1992, the Incubator has been associated with more than 120 businesses, and over 60 companies have graduated successfully from the LIHTI program, contributing over $2.5B to the national economy and creating jobs for over 500 employees.
Our affiliation with the Stony Brook University makes LIHTI an ideal place for cutting-edge R&D. Transferring technology and ideas from the University to the private sector has proven to be the single most important reason why the program has succeeded beyond anyone’s imagination.
