    The Z80 is an incubator that seeks to grow the internet-based technology sector throughout Buffalo and Western New York. Although primary focus will be on technology-focused companies, the incubator will allow Life Sciences, GreenTech and SaaS companies to be part of Z80, should they have a local sponsor and meet the other criteria. Z80 Labs is funded by SCP Management and Softbank Capital. Additional funding for investment in startups will be provided by the SCP Buffalo Incubator LP, who was awarded $5.2 million from the Innovate NY grant. The Z80 Labs Investment Committee will meet monthly to review all applications for acceptance. Accepted companies will sign an agreement that provides Z80 Labs with a five percent equity interest in their business or idea. In return for the equity, Z80 provides facility space, back office services, training, mentoring, classes, and access to prospective investors.
