43North is an accelerator program that invests $5M annually into 8 companies through its startup competition. They invest either $500K or $1M into each company, and over the last 5 years, 43North’s 51 portfolio companies have gone on to raise more than $430M in funding.
In addition to investment, winners receive Class A office space in 43North’s incubator, state tax breaks through STARTUP-NY, one-on-one mentorship with industry experts, marketing, hiring, and investing support from the 43North team, and access to a network of hundreds of investors. Portfolio companies receive these incentives in exchange for 5% equity and a requirement that the CEO and 50% of staff relocate to Buffalo for at least one year.
They look for founders that have incredible domain expertise, a strong team supporting them, a ready-to-ship product, and traction with customers (revenue or a path to revenue within 12 months).
