NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- New Rochelle's Iona College has been selected for Start-Up NY, the program designed to help bring qualified business to tax-free zones throughout the state.
Colleges throughout the state host these tax-free zones, and Iona is one of only two private institutions in Westchester County to be part of the program.
“We’re committed to being a partner with the New Rochelle and Westchester communities,” Iona President Joseph E. Nyre said in a statement. “The interaction with business enterprises will have a positive impact on our students and faculty, creating resources of business expertise and internship possibilities for our students, a natural synergy with our new Institute for Business Analytics and its Center for Health Care Analytics within the Hagan School of Business.”
Iona College, the second largest private employer in New Rochelle, will endeavor to expand business partnerships with high-tech, innovative and high-growth potential companies, with the prospect of breaking new ground in the area of data-driven analytics. The focus for the initial application will be in the area of healthcare analytics, with future applications for business, the sciences and cyber security.
