YBI receives $10,000 donation
The Youngstown Business Incubator received $10,000 from the Home Savings Charitable Foundation on Wednesday.
The donation will go toward a broader fund- raising effort at the YBI, which it launched in a $2.5 million effort to become more self- sustaining and less reliant on state funding, incubator officials said.
Thus far, the campaign is on track. In April, the YBI already had raised, $1.15 million. YBI recognized Home Savings as a longtime supporter of its mission as an incubator that helps to foster software startups.
