Investors: Get Involved with 43North

We engage investors to share deal flow, refer startups to our program, serve as mentors and/or assist in our judging and selection process.

“It’s important to invest outside of the coasts and invest in cities like Buffalo because talent is equally distributed, opportunity isn’t. You have great founders who are based in Buffalo with great business ideas.”

— Lorine Pendleton, Portfolia
