Grant to Support Council's Biotech Incubator on MarshallUniversity's Campus

HUNTINGTON, W. Va.,Nov. 25/PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to attract new biotechnology companies and assist them in bringing new ideas and products to market quickly and efficiently, the Huntington Area Development Council (HADCO) is creating a biotech incubator with the help of a $150,000 grant from Verizon West Virginia.

The incubator, which will be located on Marshall University's campus, will be completed in May 2009.

"Technology is important to West Virginia's continued growth and future success," said Gerald L. McDonald, president of HADCO. "Through the biotech incubator, our goal is to provide seamless support for biotech startups and create new, technology-based jobs for our area. Our partnership with Verizon will help make this happen."

Verizon's grant will help offset the costs for startup biotech companies to receive consulting on technology planning and market research, along with technical assistance related to testing the commercial viability of emerging biotech products and services.

B. Keith Fulton, president of Verizon West Virginia, said, "Verizon has been a leading proponent of economic development in Huntington and West Virginia for more than 20 years. By partnering with organizations like HADCO to improve the communities we serve, we are helping to create a diversified, forward-looking economy where entrepreneurs can succeed.

"Once these new businesses are in the incubator, HADCO and Marshall University will support them as they focus on getting their ideas to market," said Fulton. "That will help these businesses grow and create jobs right here at home."
