Aug 31, 2016

High Tech of Rochester is getting a $2.5 million dollar federal grant to renovate its headquarters at the Sibley Building in downtown Rochester.

That according to Senator Charles Schumer and Congresswoman Louise Slaughter, who say the renovation of the space will help the nonprofit organization continue to provide technical and logistical support to more than 75 companies throughout the area.

The money comes through the Economic Development Administration.

High Tech of Rochester is building its new ‘business accelerator’ on the 6th floor of the recently redeveloped Sibley Building.
