Long Island High Technology Incubator (LIHTI)
The Long Island High Technology Incubator is a non-profit business incubator that
supports and stabilizes early-stage, high-risk, high-tech businesses to enhance their
opportunity for development and growth. We are dedicated to helping new technologically-innovative
companies to mature by providing them with a variety of support resources and services.
In addition to its beautiful setting, LIHTI’s location on the Stony Brook University
campus enables the transfer of ideas from the University to the private sector. The
companies that develop and grow as a result of being a part of the Incubator create
jobs and expand the tax base on Long Island and in New York State. In its 16 years
of operation, the incubator has housed over 70 companies, which have had a high survival
rate upon graduating from the program.
