"Where is Tech Valley in New York?"
Our REALTORS® have been asked this question again and again. So many New Yorkers have heard the name, but many don't know where it is — or even what it is! Believe it or not, you don't need to head west of the Rockies to find booming tech companies that are changing the industry. You hardly need to go west of the Hudson to locate the hub of biotech, life science and nanotechnology businesses that have given Tech Valley its name.
Surely, you've heard of the famed Silicon Valley in California — Tech Valley is the East Coast equivalent. This area features a variety of educational facilities and technological corporations within the life science, nanotechnology and biotech industries. The term "Tech Valley" was first coined in the late 1990s by the Albany-Colonie Regional Chamber of Commerce to brand the area with a name that highlighted the significant impact these growing industries have had on the state.
