Phillips Lytle will lend its New York City office space and resources to Canadian startups companies looking to expand in the United States.
The Buffalo-headquartered law firm has partnered with Communitech, a tech company innovation center based in Waterloo, Ont., to create a “landing pad” called Communitech NYC.
Similar to a business incubator, Communitech NYC will provide temporary workspace, meeting rooms, mentoring and professional services to Canadian startups. The aim is to help Canadian companies access business connections, customers, funding and other resources in New York City. The center will also give startups access to Phillips Lytle’s network of business and venture capital contacts.
