It’s a chance to hear about some of the best and the brightest business concepts, developed by investors, sponsors and entrepreneurs from Buffalo, California, Florida, New York City, Ottawa, Toronto, Switzerland, Australia and Israel (among others). 41 exhibitors will be present at the event, representing fields that include health care, advanced manufacturing, agriculture, printing, energy and technology.We’ve all been anticipating the culmination of this fascinating competition, and now we can hear firsthand about a number of the ideas that made it to the top. The event is called The Bright Buffalo Niagara Semifinalist Meet-Up. “The 43North competition affords Western New York the opportunity to showcase the best and brightest new ideas from across our region and worldwide,” said Norma Nowak, director of science and technology for UB’s New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences. “The semifinalists we have gathered rose to the top in a sea of almost 7,000 business plans and we are both proud and humbled to welcome them to this premier entrepreneurial event.”While the finalists have been selected for the 43North Competition, and the winners are scheduled to be announced, it’s important to remember that the caliber of entries was first rate. These competitors are dynamic and determined, and are eager to participate in this platform that will put them in front of an investor community with many ties to Buffalo.
