Podcast: The Plan To Jumpstart A Startup Ecosystem

Christina Orsi was one of the architects of the Buffalo Billion plan that has sparked a renewed entrepreneurial spirit in Western New York. This week on the Latitude Podcast Christina talks us through some of the reasons why 43North was part of that plan, the other projects succeeding in that plan and how Buffalo is faring thus far in developing our startup ecosystem.

Christina is a board member of 43North as well as the associate vice president of economic development at the University at Buffalo. Her role there is to help students take their idea, or graduate degree work and turn them into viable businesses.
