University at Buffalo
BUFFALO, N.Y. — The climate for high-tech investment in Western New York has improved steadily over the past few years, and a driver of new successes is an annual investor forum that’s happening again this spring.
The Bright Forum is Buffalo Niagara’s premier event for introducing investors to promising technologies from across New York and Ontario, Canada.
Hosted by Bright Buffalo Niagara, a coalition of regional partners led by the University at Buffalo, the forum features a series of pitch sessions where entrepreneurs present ideas to investors. Sponsors include UB’s New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences and Superior Group, a global workforce and business solutions provider.
This year, the event takes place from May 16-17 in the form of the 2012 Venture Forum, a collaboration between the Bright Forum and the Center for Economic Growth’s SmartStart UNYTECH Venture Forum.
