Ithaca Venture Community,
Here's an event happening in Ithaca this evening that may be of interest to you:
Please join FLEF as LaunchNY's interim CEO Tom Schryver discusses this exciting initiative that spans the 27 county region including the Southern Tier, Finger Lakes, Central and Western New York.
LaunchNY is an organization that will catalyze, integrate and expand high growth entrepreneurial start up activity.
LaunchNY will identify start ups with high growth potential, conduct deep due diligence, provide early stage investment funding and a high level of expert technical assistance to support company growth in the region.
LaunchNY is based on JumpStart, a successful Northeast Ohio program that was supported by national foundations and the federal government through President Obama's start up America Initiative. A regional action plan was completed in 2011 to guide the development of LaunchNY, and fundraising is currently taking place.
