ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A local digital marketing agency was awarded $1 million from the Empire State Development Excelsior Jobs Program.
The program works to encourage businesses to expand in New York and aims to guarantee those businesses deliver on job investment commitments.
Digital Hyve has 52 full-time employees in two office locations, one in Syracuse and one in Rochester.
The company received one of the largest awards in the region.
“It's a win-win for both,” Digital Hyve’s Community Development Director Norma Holland said. “For the State, for Rochester and for Syracuse for the two communities where our offices are. Because what we will be able to do is to create those meaningful jobs. Jobs that, you know, that are paying a living wage.”
The award is given to businesses in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, high-tech, clean technology, green technology and financial services industries who maintain new jobs or make significant financial investments in New York State.
