Three Takeaways from Buffalo Startup Weekend

Guest blog by Rachel Stern, Invest Buffalo Niagara Intern, University at Buffalo WNY Prosperity Fellow

  1. Investors frequently say “it’s not the idea, it’s the team.” That phrase certainly holds true at events like Buffalo Startup Weekend, which helped kick off 43North Week. Participants can give a 60-second pitch of an idea they have, everyone votes for three favorites, and teams are formed around which top idea they can contribute to the most. The teams with the greatest success – whether at a 54-hour marathon weekend, competitions like 43North, or at established companies – are those with a diverse range of expertise. Startup Weekend gives participants the opportunity to work with new people, expand their networks, and make lasting connections.
