Every year 43North awards $5 MILLION in capital – including a grand prize of $1 MILLION – to truly remarkable startups from around the world. But the money is just the beginning.

In addition to cash, 43North winners receive incubator space, expert mentorship, and ten years of freedom from state taxes. And beyond that, they win access to the resources, infrastructure, and people of a city where remarkable things are happening –  BUFFALO, NY.

400k_bonus

43North will award additional $400,000 in funding among the 2016 winning startups that stand out the most during their first year in Buffalo.

StartUpNY

How does 10 years of freedom from New York State taxes for your company sound? The answer is awesome. How about if your employees could also be free from state personal income taxes? Not bad, eh? 43North winning companies can apply for START-UP NY, which makes this all possible.

mentors

When 43North’s winners succeed, 43North succeeds. That’s why we provide our winners with much more than money. They receive mentorship from established business leaders, connections to investors and tons of exposure and marketing support. Nice, right?

incubator

43North isn’t just an annual competition – it’s also a business incubator. Located downtown on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, 43North is a busy hub of the new BUFFALO economy. And it’s a great place to get things started.
