Tech Valley is well connected to our North American neighbors and to markets throughout the world, making it an outstanding location for doing international business and trade.
Connected to Montreal by a short stretch of interstate highway, by air from a number of airports, by rail and by passenger train, businesses in Tech Valley are well-situated to transport goods and conduct business with important Canadian markets.
In this global economy, business is increasingly driven by seaports that provide the critical links between the world’s major markets. Again, Tech Valley is ideally located. Positioned between the top two trans-Atlantic seaports in North America – Port of Montreal and Port of New York/New Jersey – and home to the Port of Albany, Tech Valley links its businesses to the world. These ports are also interconnected by air, rail and road to ease the transportation of products worldwide.
A number of state and federal agencies and other business assistance groups are ready to assist Tech Valley companies in developing international markets for their goods and services.
