The first round of judging has come to a close, and 43North is excited to announce the 134 startups that are moving on to the semifinals! This year, 502 submissions were received from around the world and across a variety of industries.
Over the next few weeks, each semifinalist will present a live virtual pitch to a panel of judges, where they’ll present their business model and answer any questions the judges may have. Then, those selected as finalists will come to Buffalo in October for 43North Finals, where they’ll pitch live for a shot at a cut of $5 million.
Congratulations to the Innovation Factory clients who will be pitching:
