Watervliet Innovation Center
Founded by the Center for Economic Growth (CEG), the Watervliet Innovation Center is a state-of-the-art technology and business accelerator focused on the rapid growth of emerging homeland and national security technology companies. In support of this mission, the Center is within the Watervliet Arsenal campus, co-located with the US Army”s Benét Labs and an Army Material Command (AMC) manufacturing center.
It provides a “demand-pull infrastructure,” where client companies, both resident and affiliate, gain visibility into the technology needs of the industry through a national network of academic, industrial, and government stakeholders. The Center helps companies strategically align technology development efforts with the needs of their security and defense customers, enhancing opportunities for joint venturing, financing, and market acceptance.
