Tech hub competition draws flurry of applications
BUFFALO, NY (The Buffalo News) — The joint bid by Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse to secure potentially tens of millions of dollars in federal funding for a “tech hub” faces stiff competition.

“The number of applications was surprising to all of us, including Schumer’s office,” said Dottie Gallagher, president and CEO of the Buffalo Niagara Partnership.
The federal program aims to create innovation centers outside of traditional locations like Silicon Valley. The upstate bid focuses on the semiconductor industry and advanced manufacturing.
Democrat Mark Poloncarz and Republican Chrissy Casilio couldn’t have been more different in their answers Thursday at a forum hosted by the Buffalo Niagara Partnership.
