Since our inception in 2003, the Venture Creations Incubator at RIT has graduated more than 40 companies, who have collectively created more than 600 jobs and raised more than $150 million in outside investment capital.

At any given time, there are between 25-30 resident and non-resident companies in the incubator.

The Venture Creations Incubator reports up through RIT’s Vice President for Research and, as a result, can make connections for member companies to access a wide variety of RIT resources and capabilities.


Venture Creations is located at 40 Franklin Street, which is a great location in Downtown Rochester.
