Building Success With M&T Bank: Wrafterbuilt

Block Club has teamed up with M&T Bank for a new video series called Building Success, featuring personal stories of people building a community of growth in Buffalo. The stories range from local business owners talking about what led them to start their own business to millennials describing the experience of buying a home for the first time or taking the first steps to save for retirement.

The videos were produced by Rise Collaborative, a culture and lifestyle media outlet focused on promoting Buffalo’s small businesses and nonprofits.

The first video features local entrepreneur Sean Wrafter. Sean began Wrafterbuilt, a design and build company, in 2013. Wrafterbuilt specializes in custom fixtures and furniture for residential and commercial interiors, with products made from reclaimed wood and steel. Sean is passionate about conveying the lessons and perspectives he learned in opening a new business to those who are considering the same path.
