-Created opportunities for collaboration and growth through relationship-building and cross-industry awareness.

-Helped young leaders develop personally and professionally through a focused year-long curriculum.

This year, CLIMB seeks to harness even more of the power of this region’s great minds with an added one-to-one mentoring component. One established leader will be matched to each CLIMB participant, for candid conversations addressing a number of topics over the course of 10 months.

CLIMB is looking for Business and Community Leaders who are committed to the Rochester/Finger Lakes region’s growth and prosperity, and who are willing to engage in a two-way conversation with young leaders, to the benefit of all involved.
