If you believe that attracting start-ups is one of the keys to Buffalo’s renaissance, then you’re not alone. Buffalo real estate mogul Nick Sinatra agrees, and feels that Buffalo would continue to flourish if additional opportunities were provided for start-ups/incubators. Sinatra has written an article in Entrepreneur.com that discusses the nature of start-ups, and their relationship with Rust Belt cities (see here). From the Market Arcade to The Barrel Factory to the West Side Bazaar to The Foundry to 43North, there are plenty of examples of entrepreneurs and non-profits giving start-ups the tools that they need to plant roots and grow within the community.
Be sure to check out what Sinatra says about the potential of start-ups, and Buffalo’s role in this relatively new and untapped industry.
