Our Investment Focus

Welcome to the 2013 Bright Buffalo Niagara application site!

Bright Buffalo Niagara is Western New York’s premier venture forum. Since 2009, Bright Buffalo Niagara has partnered with local investors and entrepreneurs to cultivate an ecosystem that nurtures economic growth. The 2013 event takes place September 30 and October 1 at Statler City in downtown Buffalo.

Eligible companies are early-stage, ideally high-tech or technology-related, high growth opportunities with a prototype or market-ready product or service and no more than $10 million in trailing 12 month revenues. Pre-revenue companies with substantial R & D development milestones will also be considered.

The 2013 Venture Forum is accepting applications from companies interested in presenting through August 15, 2013. Applicants must complete the information application process and will be required to pay a non-refundable fee of $50 to be considered, followed by an additional $50 fee once an applicant has been selected to present.

Applicants will be scheduled for a presentation review session with members from our experienced investor review panel and will receive valuable feedback throughout the evaluation and selection process. Companies will be selected to make either a 10-minute or 1-minute presentation at the forum.

All paid applicants - regardless of the presentation selection decision - will be offered a free ticket to attend and network at Bright Buffalo Niagara and will have an overview and logo included in the attendee and investor materials.
