More than 150 entrepreneurs and venture capitalists from throughout New York State gathered at Brighton’s ARTISANworks Tuesday evening to network and to hear some Rochester success stories. Organized by the Upstate Venture Association of New York (UVANY), the event featured an introductory presentation on “The New Rochester” by Richard Glaser and an interactive panel discussion featuring Mike Totterman (iCardiac), David Chauncey (vNomics), Tim Wilson (Arnold Magnetics), and Chris Modesti (Biomaxx). The panel was moderated by Will Hoy (Secrest & Emery). The venue perfectly captured the energy and creativity present in the room. The picture, above, was taken seconds before the UR Ventures banner stand noisily imploded.
