43North continues its focus on supporting their portfolio companies and the larger Buffalo entrepreneurial community. Their second installment of ‘How to Start a Startup’ is September 16, at 4 pm ET. It’s free; reserve your spot here.
Not sure if it’s the right time to start a company? 43North invites you to join the virtual discussion to learn how you can start and grow a company during this most unlikely time. How to Start a Startup was originally a lecture given by Sam Altman (founder of YCombinator) to a Stanford entrepreneurship class. 43North adapted the framework for aspiring founders to help build a scalable, high-growth business from the ground up.
"This is a community-focused program that we designed for aspiring entrepreneurs to gain practical knowledge from experts and founders who have been in their shoes,” says Maura Devlin, 43North’s VP of marketing strategy and public relations. “We were thrilled to see the wide attendance with our first edition; it speaks to the entrepreneurial spirit that’s alive and well in our city. With this next installment, we'll help participants understand that even during a global pandemic you can start a startup and be successful."
The second discussion features Dave Horesh, co-founder of Oxford Pennant, and Dave Jakubowski, a native Buffalonian, founder of Ignite Buffalo, and a Silicon Valley expert with stints at Facebook, Microsoft, and three of his own companies. Both Jakubowski and Horesh will share vital insights on starting a startup at a time when it seems impossible.
