“In New York's Capital Region and across upstate we are continuing to attract and support startup companies that create next generation jobs for our communities,” Governor Cuomo said. “Virtusa’s decision to expand and establish its technology center in the City of Troy is the latest example of New York's expanding high-tech sector which is a key component of bringing back the upstate economy."
“The new technology center will be a thriving hub of ideas, taking advantage of the region’s abundant technology talent and close proximity to clients,” said Harsha Kumar, senior vice president and executive sponsor for the center. “The dynamic environment is designed to accelerate the ideation process and enable our clients to completely rethink and transform their customer experience.”
New York State gave the company $200,000 in performance-based tax credits in return for the company's investment into the area.
