Digital Hyve, a digital marketing agency with offices in Syracuse and Rochester, recently received $1 million from the Empire State Development Excelsior Jobs program.
The program encourages businesses to expand in the state while maintaining accountability standards to guarantee those businesses deliver on job and investment commitments. Digital Hyve plans to expand into Buffalo.
“This award is a testament to our growth over the last five years,” said Jeff Knauss, co-founder and CEO. “From day one we set out to build a strong company, investing in our employees and working with a client-first mentality. We are so grateful to be recognized with this award, which will allow us to continue to grow our company and, in turn, will provide more job opportunities in central New York.”
The award goes to businesses in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, high-tech, clean technology, green technology or financial services industries that maintain new jobs or make significant financial investments in the state.
