“It was time to relocate. I knew what I wanted from my new home; I just didn’t know where it would be. Then I discovered 43North and I was hooked! We packed the car, convinced our dog she would love the city, and were Buffalo bound! We didn’t know anyone, and I didn’t have a job. That didn’t matter in Buffalo. I found my startup dream job and have made lots of friends. Buffalo is home!”
