The Incubator for New Ventures in Emerging Sciences and Technologies (INVEST) located at Russell Sage College in Troy, New York, is exceptionally well equipped for an incubator/accelerator affiliated with a liberal-arts college. INVEST offers 21 wet-lab workstations suitable for nanotechnology, energy, pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients. A separate wing has office suites available to users of lab space, flexible for "dry" ventures in IT or other fields, and micro-enterprise.
INVEST is directed by Dr. Thomas Keane, who also directs the college's Laboratories for Interdisciplinary Studies in Emerging Sciences. The lab facility of INVEST has a direct connection with the college's science building, making it easily accessible to both faculty and students interested in internships with incubator tenants.
