Launch NY is a nonprofit venture development organization serving the 27 counties in the western half of Upstate NY, Including the cities of Binghamton, Buffalo, Ithaca, Rochester, Syracuse, and surrounding areas. Launch NY’s mission is drive job and wealth creation by helping high-growth potential startup businesses get the resources they need to start, grow, prosper, and give back.

And we are doing something BIG to help them even more. We have launched a crowdfunding campaign complete with a video series giving the world a glimpse of the highlights among our Launch NY startup clients. This is our creative way of asking people like yourself to partner with us to help support these promising startup businesses!

If you are interested, we have put together a few donation options and benefits for individuals and organizations:

$2,500+ places your logo on the Launch NY crowdfunding campaign page for the duration of campaign until December 7, 2015, plus a social media mention on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn which is then promoted throughout New York State

$10,000+ places your logo on the Launch NY crowdfunding campaign page and LaunchNY.org website for the duration of campaign until December 7, 2015, a social media mention on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn which is then promoted throughout New York State. And a full blog post written about the donor and why you donated to Launch NY (complete with links to your social media).

$20,000+ places your logo on the Launch NY crowdfunding campaign page and LaunchNY.org homepage banner for the duration of campaign until December 7, 2015, a social media mention on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn which is then promoted throughout New York State. And a full blog post written about the donor and why you donated to Launch NY (complete with links to your social media). In addition, you will get “partnership branding” for 3 months including social posts once a week announcing the partnership for 3 months, your logo on the website as a partner for 3 months and a press release to regional media announcing the donor as a key supporter of Launch NY.

For the majority of these startup companies, the first 2-3 years are the “make or break” years when they have to develop and test their idea. In a region like Upstate NY that only receives 3% of venture capital invested in the state annually it can be hard to find the resources for this proof-of-concept stage – even for the best ideas. Your donation will go directly to the Launch NY Seed Fund to help client companies grow and succeed.

In addition to helping an entrepreneur and the region, your donation may be tax deductible as Launch New York, Inc. is a charitable organization exempt from income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. Please consult your tax advisor.

As a donor, you will receive updates on how our clients are progressing, plus you can also follow along with our video and blog series that highlights clients we have helped along the way. Follow along easily via our Facebook Page.

From Launch NY, and our Upstate NY startup clients – Thank You’
