43North Competition Celebration Recap
Written by: John Osberg, InfoTech WNY Board Memeber
Members of InfoTech WNY's Board of Directors were in attendance at the 3rd installment of 43 North's $5 million Finals event at Shea's Performing Arts Center in late October 2016. This year's event was undoubtedly the most successful featuring many highly viable and innovative businesses. A sold out crowd full of business/politics leaders, professionals and entrepreneurs witnessed the $1 million dollar prize go to Oncolinx - a life sciences company that has worked with the National Cancer Institute on efforts to target cancer cells that does not harm healthy cells and without the side effects of chemotherapy. It is safe to say that Buffalo NY's startup/tech/entrepreneurial/business ecosystem is one of the most vibrant in the United States.
