In Buffalo, our workforce is not only robust and trending younger, it’s better educated, more productive, and more reliable than the rest of the country.
What’s more, the trend isn’t slowing. Buffalo Niagara is home to dozens of colleges and universities producing 28,000 new degree earners each year, many of whom stay and contribute to our growing economy, startup community, and social vibrancy.
But like any metro area, we aren’t without challenges. Despite the promising outlook, our regional economy is expanding and new jobs are being added at a clip that outpaces Buffalo’s pool of active jobseekers.
Fortunately, in every challenge lies opportunity.
Invest Buffalo Niagara (InBN), the region’s nonprofit economic development organization, met that challenge and opportunity with a solution. InBN teamed up with local employers in emerging sectors and its longtime investors and partners to launch a talent attraction campaign to showcase all the extraordinary ways there are to Be in Buffalo.
Together, we’re working to reintroduce ambitious young professionals across the country to a Buffalo they thought they knew—a Buffalo still grounded by accessibility but freshly reeling with energy and boundless opportunity to help them reach next-level success and “be” whatever they want to be—whether that’s a first-time homeowner, creative freelancer, c-level executive, or anything in between.
From its rapidly expanding high-growth job market to its world-renowned cultural amenities, low cost of living, and stunningly accessible real estate market, it’s no wonder Buffalo is attracting college-educated young adults in droves.
