Entrepalooza '12, an annual gathering of Buffalo Niagara's entrepreneurs and business leaders, took place Thursday, May 10th at the Buffalo Convention Center. Drawing a crowd of about 300 people, the event featured an exhibition of local businesses, discussions with local industry experts and an afternoon presentation by Keith McFarland featuring his recent work, The Breakthrough Company: How Everyday Companies Become Extraordinary Performers.

"It's a great way to network with hundreds of business owners and the speaker is a nationally recognized presenter each year," says 360 PSG President Joel Colombo, when asked what he finds beneficial about the event. "The morning session offers dozens of industry experts with high-level experience in different business aspects that any business leader in an organization can take advantage of to grow and expand their own practices as well."

Colombo, who also presented on the topic of Internet-Related Marketing, helped sponsor the event through 360 PSG. "Our team feels very connected to the entrepreneurial community in the Buffalo area, and it is something that we believe in and support," he continued. "The fuel for growth in our region will be coming from the small and mid-size companies around WNY and 360 looks to help those companies grow with whatever tools are available."

Local media coverage of the event can be found at Buffalo Business First, The Buffalo News, and Buffalo Rising.

The event was hosted by the UB CEL Alumni Association, Buffalo Niagara Sales and Marketing Executives, and the Buffalo Niagara Partnership.
