  • With experience in establishing and maintaining relationships with various organizations in the Buffalo Niagara region and Upstate New York, Jessica knows that community connectivity is vital to maintain a healthy entrepreneurial ecosystem. She is the link to a world of great networks and entrepreneurial connectivity. The Design Innovation Garage, or dig, located on the first floor in the Innovation Center, is a hub of opportunities and Jessica can tell you why. When she’s not busy giving tours of the unique space — the three yellow bungee rooms – you can catch her engaging in relationship building with members looking for support and collaboration opportunities. Ongoing educational workshops and events keep Jessica busy; dig is always packed with entrepreneurial gurus looking to share their successful tactics to eager ears.
