The 43North Finals



Acara is proud to have been a Silver Sponsor, to the 43North competition, which has been proclaimed as, “The Biggest Business Competition on the Planet.”

With the 7,000 applications whittled down to the final 11, the 43North competition came to a close as the $1 million grand-prize was awarded on Thursday night to Tonawanda-based ASi LLC.

The finalists presented throughout the day on Thursday before a panel of judges that included Buffalo Bills co-owner Kim Pegula, the editor of Forbes magazine, and a slew of other nationally recognized venture capitalists.
