Upstate New York, December 1, 2015 — This past fall, Launch NY began the first crowdfunding campaign in the country by a nonprofit venture development organization to support its work with local entrepreneurs. These startups, with their innovative products, will be the backbone of the region’s economy for years to come. Earlier this month, with the help of VCAMP Health Venture Accelerator, the campaign was able to surpass its $100,000 goal through the national day of giving known as #GivingTuesday. Reaching this goal was necessary to provide funding that startups need, but can’t find, to fuel their vital proof-of-concept work.
