Syracuse, Binghamton & Ithaca, November 23, 2015 — When Central New York and Southern Tier area expatriates (expats), who are passionate about their hometown, return for the Holidays, they will marvel over the growth of the local startup community in a region that is ready to reverse the trend in loss of industry and population. And this year they will have a chance to get involved through Giving Tuesday donations to support a new seed fund helping area startup companies at the critical proof-of-concept stage. As the only nonprofit venture development organization serving companies across the 27-counties in the western half of New York State, Launch NY has a crowdfunding campaign at https://www.givegab.com/nonprofits/launch-ny/campaigns/launch-ny where expats can make a charitable contribution to build startups and the innovation economy in a region they love. The website service charges are waived for donations made on Giving Tuesday.
