A trio of local companies will represent Buffalo in a battle to become the best startup at this year’s Collision Conference.

New Orleans will host the April gathering. ACV Auctions, Loupe (formerly known as City Dining Cards) and Painless1099 will join 21 other companies from around the country in what is called the Launch Pad PITCH competition.

Buffalo’s contestants were chosen by a local committee comprised of the city’s leading business organizations.
