New York State’s high technology sector is distinguished by mixed industry-academia partnerships, access to venture capital, a highly educated work force, and training resources that nurture and develop industry leaders. Confirming New York’s role as a center for future technologies, Small Times Magazine—a leading business publication for small-tech companies—reported that New York State ranks second in the nation in nanotechnology research and fourth in overall development of nanotechnology. In addition, the magazine found that New York was gaining more nanotech companies and venture capital dollars to support them.  
The NY Loves Nanotech initiative is organized by the Center for Economic Growth (CEG), with sponsorship support from Empire State Development, National Grid and NYSTAR, with the goal of developing a solutions-based economic development approach to the semiconductor/nanotechnology industry in New York State. 
New York State is proud to be the home of many world-class nanotechnology companies, including:

  • AMD
  • Applied Materials
  • ASML
  • Corning
  • CVD Corporation
  • Dow
  • DuPont
  • General Electric
  • Global Foundries
  • IBM
  • Kodak
  • Tokyo Electron


The Center of Excellence in Nanoelectronics and Nanotechnology (CENN) at the University of Albany is a $5 billion investment that has conducted the State’s most important academic nanotechnology development efforts.
In addition, New York boasts a host of other world-class nanotechnology research centers, including:


New York State is also home to two of the world’s most advanced semiconductor fabs, including IBM’s $2.5 billion 300mm fab in East Fishkill and Global Foundries’ $4.2 billion 300mm fab in Malta. The Global Foundries project was the world’s largest economic development deal in 2006 and IBM’s fab, announced in 2000, was the largest private-sector investment in the United States since 1995.
