Governor Murphy Announces Tools to Spur Innovation & Growth of High-Tech Firms

Governor Phil Murphy announced two important tools – the Incubator and Collaborative Workspace Rent Initiative (ICWRI) and a modernized Research and Development (R&D) tax credit – to support new and established high-tech companies in growing the Garden State’s Innovation Economy. The Governor made the announcement during a visit to Princeton Innovation Center BioLabs.

Through the ICWRI, new start-ups will be assisted with rent at incubators, accelerators and other collaborative workspaces.
