Our Ecosystem is Growing

You may, or may not, know that Happy Valley LaunchBox is one of a number of innovation hubs across the Commonwealth funded by President Barron’s Invent Penn State Initiative. These innovation hubs are designed to jump-start entrepreneurial activities in campus communities across PA. Each is targeted to help the local community. Some provide co-working space, others maker spaces, and still others education such as with Accelerator programs.

Last week, Penn State announced that 4 more innovation hubs have received seed grants of $50,000 to develop centers in their communities. This brings the total count to 17.
