Invent Penn State

State College
Est. 2015

Launched in 2015 by Penn State President Dr. Eric Barron, Invent Penn State is a coordinated effort to connect the university with the community to create and grow entrepreneurial ecosystems both in State College and throughout Pennsylvania.

Invent Penn State leverages Penn State’s research and academic resources with entrepreneurs and business owners to develop products and services that will hopefully benefit communities in both Pennsylvania and around the world.

In addition to funding 13 innovation hubs across Pennsylvania, Invent Penn State created and connected entrepreneurship-focused academic programs, business start up training, funding for commercialization and university-community collaborations to spur future economic development, job creation and student career success.

The organization successfully hosted the Venture and IP Conference this past fall, with the next one planned for spring 2018.
