Colleen Heidinger is the President at 43North. Colleen is inspired by their founders and their insane dedication to their startups. Having a front-row seat watching them grow their teams with local talent and fall in love with Buffalo just the way she did again after moving back from L.A. is heartwarming and magical to witness. And, our board. She feels incredibly supported by those that encouraged her to take this role, and their commitment to this community and strong business success is something that makes Colleen want to perform better each day.
The inspiration that this event provides for this community in that night, where we award winners and welcome them to Buffalo, has always been a reminder that there is something bigger going on in Buffalo’s startup ecosystem. We’re keeping a close eye on what we feel is the right decision for this community from a logistical perspective. We recognize the difficulty the nation is in, but we think entrepreneurship and continued investment in startups is going to help this nation recover. It’s great to be here, and I think the best is yet to come in terms of the energy that surrounds this tower.23 September 2021
