Startup businesses less than five years old are now the greatest generator of new jobs. Launch NY’s mission is to identify, support, and fund these high-growth-potential startup businesses, and it does so through pro-bono mentoring and the most active seed fund in New York State. NextCorps’ Marketing Director, Holly Barrett, sits down with Launch NY’s Co-Founder, President, and CEO, Marnie Lavigne, to talk about the non-profit’s mission and how it’s making it easier to invest local. Marnie shares tips for entrepreneurs to be investor-ready and her take on the deals happening in Upstate New York.
