Orlando, Fla. / Buffalo, N.Y. (May 7, 2015) — Geocove, Inc., a leading provider of GIS-based technology that helps disaster management teams assess the magnitude of storm destruction and plan damage control and recovery operations, is opening new offices in Orlando and Buffalo.
Karyn Tareen, chief executive officer of Geocove and a graduate of the University of Buffalo (UB), said the company recently graduated from the University of Central Florida (UCF) Business Incubator at the Central Florida Research Park in East Orange County and moved into offices just down the street at 12001 Research Parkway.
Geocove was recently accepted into START-UP NY, a new initiative by the State of New York to provide tax incentives to business expanding to New York. Geocove will open a new office next month at the University of Buffalo’s Technology Incubator located in Amherst, New York.
For Tareen, the Buffalo office offers a wealth of opportunities and local expertise. A graduate of the UB’s prestigious Geography Department, Tareen said she is looking forward to reestablishing her relationships with the university.
“I am looking forward to a continuing relationship with the university and its students,” Tareen said.
Tareen said Geocove’s new UB office is already a success. “We are looking forward to the first round of UB interns starting this summer,” Tareen said.
