On Dec. 6, Syncsort, one of the newest members of the START-UP NY program, will host a ribbon cutting ceremony for its new office in Pearl River, NY. Though generally considered a massive failure, the START-UP NY program will still bring 144 new jobs to the Rockland County area. To celebrate a rare instance of the program’s success, the governor, lieutenant governor, and Empire State Development CEO Howard Zemsky are likely to be in attendance for the Dec. 6 ribbon cutting.
Syncsort often refers to itself as “the venerable startup” – although it’s been one of the most prominent companies in the Big Data/Hadoop ecosystem for nearly 50 years, it runs similar to a successful startup, adapting to emerging tech and aggressively pursuing new industry partnerships. In its partnership with Iona College, Syncsort is one of the top 3 companies in START-UP NY, a program that offers tax breaks and other perks to companies whose mission aligns with NY colleges and universities.
