As a Board member I support the 434North mission to grow and support the entrepreneurial ecosystem in WNY. This organization holds a business competition resulting in $1mil for the top company and $500k for the runners up. These young companies in addition to the funds are incubated at Seneca One and must take up residency in western NY for at least 1 year. Life science company successes include 2 companies focused on democratizing clinical trials in communities outside of large academic medical centers as well as enrolling individuals from non white populations. The portfolio companies include founders of color, women and as an organization 43North strongly supports inclusive companies that will leverage the talent across our community for their growth.; Board Member
As a board member for the Buffalo Center for the Arts and Technology I support the vision and mission of the organization which serves both youth and adults from economically marginalized and disadvantaged areas of Buffalo. The youth program supports high school children at risk of not graduating high school through an arts program (performing and visual) while at the same time provides support to lift them up academically to graduate from high school. Many then attend 2 year and 4 year colleges or continue on with one of the adult training programs. Similarly the adult program provides educational training in medical coding, IT Help desk, pharmacy technician, phlebotomy, and landscape design along with 13 other programs.; Board member
