What began as the “Buffalo Billion” and 43North business competition is now a movement setting the foundation for the new economy in the Buffalo Niagara region. Public and private partnerships, new angel and institutional investors, a burgeoning medical campus and multiple examples of start-ups reaching the big leagues demonstrate that what once was a vision has now translated into reality. Join us for a discussion about why entrepreneurial resurgence is important to existing companies and service providers, and the critical role it plays in retaining the region’s growing population of new millennials.
