DCED Secretary Davin continues ‘Jobs that Pay’ tour at PSU -Technology Center Incubator

State College, PA – Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin continued the ‘Jobs that Pay’ tour at PSU-Technology Center Incubator, part of Penn State’s Innovation Park network that offers business support to early-stage entrepreneurs, inventors, and Penn State faculty.

“Governor Wolf has placed an emphasis on fostering the continued growth and achievement of Pennsylvania’s entrepreneurs,” Davin said. “Incubators are excellent resources in reaching this goal because they provide an array of business services and support including physical working space, capital, coaching and networking connections, which can set young entrepreneurial efforts off on a path to success.”

The Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Central and Northern PA helps support the efforts of the PSU-Technology Center Incubator by providing funding and business mentoring to the Incubator’s tenants.

“As the largest early-stage investor in the region, Ben Franklin makes investments not only in the new technologies developed by the startups and small manufacturers located in our footprint, but also in innovative business support programs including our Ben Franklin TechCelerator@State College and the PSU-Technology Center Incubator,” said Stephen Brawley, president and CEO of The Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Central and Northern PA.

The Ben Franklin supported business incubation program is located in the Technology Center Building at Innovation Park at Penn State. It offers 118-acres of office, manufacturing and research space, and is part of one of the world’s premier research institutions with access to Penn State’s scientific, engineering, technology, and business resources.
