We were really excited to have participated in the 2023 New York State Innovation Summit, held at the Saratoga City Center on October 16-17. This event, organized by FuzeHub, brought together various organizations from across New York State to explore state-of-the-art technologies, promote innovation, and drive business expansion.

The event celebrated New York State’s leadership in technology-led economic growth, featuring companies in biotechnology, new materials, energy innovation, and artificial intelligence. The discussions revolved around capitalizing on technology convergence opportunities, advancing commercialization strategies, and emphasizing the importance of sustainable manufacturing.
Governor Kathy Hochul’s Inspirational Address
A notable highlight of the summit was New York State Governor Kathy Hochul’s address, where she emphasized the paramount role of innovation and entrepreneurship within the state. She underscored the need to keep manufacturing operations firmly rooted in New York, reducing dependence on foreign supply chains. Governor Hochul expressed the government’s unwavering commitment to local businesses and innovators, like Marquardt, to bring this vision to life.
