- From an expo to presentations to the after-party, Buffalo Startup Week aims to celebrate WNY entrepreneurship in all its forms.
Some things are worth the wait.
Buffalo Startup Week was proving itself to be a roaring (but educational) party this past November when the first huge storm hit our region.
But the final two days of the event were delayed, not canceled, and now the (highly informative) party is back on.
Powered by BootSector, the reinvigorated Buffalo Startup Week is scheduled to take place Feb. 9 and 10 at Seneca One Tower, with a mix of presentations and networking opportunities.
The event seeks to celebrate Buffalo’s growing entrepreneurship scene, pulling together existing stakeholders and welcoming new faces to the movement. And it seeks to amplify business-builders of all sorts – from tech to Main Street to everyone in between.
Attendance is free but it is recommended that you register here.
One of the main features is a Made in WNY Expo from 4 to 8 p.m. on Feb. 9, showcasing free entrepreneurship resources in the region along with local products and technology.
The discussions themselves feature everything from testimonials – for example, “The realities of working at a startup: A LenderLogix case study” – to explanations of community resources and how to access them.
A full list is available here.
For those ready to burn off some energy after talking about business, Thursday evening will feature a boxing class from BoxStar Express and a spin class from Hype Fitness.
The event will conclude Friday with food, drinks and music at Flint Kitchen and Bar at 40 Fountain Plaza.
Entrepreneurship is in Buffalo’s bloodstream. It’s what made this city great and what will determine the long-term state of its civic health. Come hang out with a thousand or so new friends who are striving to create a more vibrant place.
