Syracuse, N.Y. – GENIUS NY, a multi-million business accelerator based in Central New York, is looking again to award six worthy businesses state dollars to develop drone tech.  

Six companies will now receive at least $250,000 for participating in the program.

Grand prizes of $1 million, $600,000, and $400,000 will be awarded to the top three competitors, with additional opportunities for follow-on funding.  

Jon Parry, Director of GENIUS NY at the Syracuse Tech Garden, joins Mark Wainwright to talk about the program.

The program is a part of the CNY Rising regional economic plan.

In March, it was announced that AutoModality won the first GENIUS NY Grand Prize
