Not all about the money
43North is back again to award businesses looking to make a clean energy impact to Buffalo, New York. Governor Cuomo proudly stated, “After two years, the 43North competition has attracted some of the world’s brightest and most innovative entrepreneurs to Buffalo and in year three, we will continue to carry the momentum forward.” 43North is a generous competition that through its online contest software, finalists are chosen and given money to complete their epic projects. The winner alone will receive $1 million and the next in line will receive $600,000. The other finalists will receive less but still a grand amount of money. But the moola isn’t the only reason why participating in 43North is worth it. A part from doing the state of New York a solid, by creating energy efficient businesses and jobs, 43North gives the winners:
- Space to complete their projects
- 10 years of not having taxes
- Access to resources
If you are an entrepreneur who even slightly thinks they could win this – how could you not sign up with benefits like that? Not to mention a bonus of $400,000 is meant to go to the startup that stands out the most during their first year on the ground in Buffalo.
Changing the lives of many
43North is a game changer for startups. A 2015 winner of 43North and Co-founder of Plum, Caitlin Macgregor said:
“The prize we were awarded from the second 43North competition was a transformational moment for our company. Like so many entrepreneurs, we look to introduce the next great idea that will revolutionize our industry. With the resources, support, and collaborative environment spearheaded by 43North, we are closer to realizing that vision.”
Skild, who has been a part of this challenge since the beginning, will continue to supply the online contest management. Just knowing that being a part of this will change the lives of so many people, makes every bit of work on it worth it. The time to register for this challenge is now!
