Buffalo Start-Up Scene Featured in UK’s Financial Times

Buffalo is experiencing some love from across the pond in a Financial Times piece. The largest business publication in the UK has caught wind of the start-up buzz in Buffalo. Writer Jonathan Moules has gleaned and written about this city’s newfound energy in the form of “events such as Startup Grind Buffalo, work spaces including d!g and Z80, and big projects such as the 43North business plan competition.”

The article goes on to describe the recent success of START-UP NY, as well as the 43North business competition. In the article, Moules states that this city is in desperate need of city-wide high speed internet. He then goes on to praise local heroes Synacor and GradFly. He also profiles “Innovative Zones” successes such as Buffalo Angels and Z80 Labs.

Marnie LaVigne, chief executive of Launch NY, a not-for-profit body providing support to early-stage ventures: “Entrepreneurs can really enjoy working and playing at the same time.” – Quote from the article
