Buffalo Billion Initiative

August 26, 2014

Governor Cuomo’s Buffalo Billion initiative has generated a competition for the best new business ideas from around the globe with a $5 million cash prize as the top award.  One of the requirements of the competition’s winner is an agreement to stay in Buffalo for a minimum of one year.  On January 9, 2014 the Buffalo News quoted David as saying, “Buffalo, N.Y. has suddenly become almost a poster child for Rust Belt rehabilitation and change.”
