Freed Maxick is proud to be a going on 4 year sponsor and supporter of the Buffalo Niagara Partnership’s Buffalo Niagara 360 program for young professionals. The program consistently throws a great yearly party for our local young workforce, to help them network, connect with key decision makers and influencers, and educate themselves on the issues facing Buffalo Niagara.

Buffalo Niagara 360’s 4th Annual Kickoff Celebration will take place on Tuesday, November 15th from 5:30 until 8:30 at the Larkin Center of Commerce at 701 Seneca Street in Buffalo.  The Larkin Center of Commerce is undergoing a large-scale transformation and has recently been profiled on Buffalo Rising. It’s going to be a fabulous venue for the event, and will hopefully expose many of Buffalo Niagara’s young professionals to some of the positive change and transformation going on in our city.

The BN360 program was launched in 2008 with a celebration at Washington Street’s Electric Tower, with additional annual celebrations  held at Shanghai Red’s and the Pearl Street Grill & Brewery. Each year has brought out new faces and new hope that Buffalo Niagara’s young working professionals will be the ones to help make a difference in our community, and continue to build and transform our region.

From an article in Buffalo Rising,  “In 2008, we held the launch party event in the Electric Tower, which was still in the process of its renovations,” said Christina Lopez, workforce development manager at the Buffalo Niagara Partnership.  “We like supporting buildings that are finding new life and the entrepreneurs that are making it happen.  We’re thrilled to be able to showcase our program at this location and that this will be the first opportunity for so many young people to see this building for the first time.”

This year’s after work event will feature food provided by local restaurants and caterers, a cash bar, numerous door prizes, a rollout of BN360’s 2011Spotlight Professionals and the opportunity to network with some of the local business community’s top players. The event is free to all BN360 members, and newcomers are encouraged to join by  Emailing for more information, or registering online at

Hope to see you there!
