The Municipal Housing Authority for the City of Yonkers is proud to partner with the Business Council of Westchester on its latest initiative – Westchester Innovation Network.
WIN is a program aimed at driving economic development, innovation, and growth within the county as a hub of innovation.
MHACY and Silver Bills, which provides, safe and secure automated bill paying for seniors, are among five founding companies to participate in WINS’ Innovation Match Program. The program seeks to match innovative companies/programs with local industry partners to test their commercially viable innovations in a real-world setting.
SilverBills will provide household bill management services to older adults and allow them to age in their homes without suffering the consequences of improper household bill management,” said SilverBills founder, CEO and general counsel Marci Lobel-Esrig.
Wilson Kimball, President and CEO of MHACY, said, “We are hopeful that successful automation of our residents’ bill payments could then serve as a model for other housing authorities nationwide.”
“At the BCW, we know that to build and sustain strong and vibrant communities, we must convene thought leaders and futurists to design a county of the future. These building blocks include creating opportunities to showcase Westchester as a place to build, grow, test, and explore innovation in all forms,” said Dr. Marsha Gordon, President and CEO of The Business Council of Westchester. “With our innovation efforts delivered through WIN, we are focused on embracing innovative new companies from Westchester, across the U.S. and internationally to learn from and co-create with them, and to advance key incentives necessary to get them to grow and stay here in Westchester.”
