Endeavor Western New York
Endeavor Western New York (WNY) identifies and selects high-impact entrepreneurs in and around Buffalo and Rochester, NY and provides them access to a global network of markets, industry leaders, investors and talent, helping to expand their ventures into enterprises that can propel the local economy and have a large impact in the community.
In recent years, WNY has seen increased early-stage startup activity and venture capital investment. Endeavor WNY builds on that momentum by supporting founders and companies in the region that have passed through the initial startup phase and demonstrate the potential for rapid expansion and scale.
Thanks to partnerships with Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation, HSBC Bank USA, Wegmans Food Markets and the Max and Marian Farash Charitable Foundation, as well as backing from local business leaders, WNY became Endeavor’s eighth affiliate in the U.S. in 2020.
