BCW Initiative Programs

Westchester Innovation Network (WIN)

WIN is a proven, multifaceted program from the Business Council of Westchester designed to create an environment within Westchester County, NY that pairs innovative products and services with local organizations to test and learn about emerging technologies in a variety of industries.
JOIN WIN

Get Inspired by our Westchester Innovation Network (WIN) Initiative

The WIN initiative aligns with the BCW’s advocacy, including universal access to broadband internet, energy reliability, and the creative overhaul of obsolete land uses.

Strengthen the Innovator’s Ecosystem

The first phase of the initiative includes the pairing of Westchester based and outside innovators with local organizations to create short term innovation teams. This partnership allows the innovator to test commercially viable innovations in real-world settings and allows Westchester organizations to see first-hand the types of innovation emerging in their industries.

Practical Innovation

This phase identifies a model municipality and pairs it with a group of innovation experts to outline a 10-part practical innovation implementation plan. The goal is to help the municipality pinpoint day-to-day changes that are needed and provide an easily implemented action plan that will deliver economic activity, cost savings, and improvement to the lives of its residents.

Planning Futurist and Implementation Guide

This phase is focused on developing a plan for what is needed to attract and retain innovators over the next five, 15 and 25 years. This will include practical, hit-the-ground-running actions needed in zoning, financing, planning, and infrastructure.
