A new state program that will provide $15 million to jump-start the clean-tech industry in New York is set to launch in the city this month out of Columbia University and the Polytechnic Institute of NYU. Organizers expect dozens of applicants to receive as much as $150,000 apiece through the program, which is an unusual collaboration between normally competitive institutions.
