Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Central and Northern Pennsylvania is part of a statewide organization dedicated to growing Pennsylvania’s technology-based economy.
There are four Ben Franklin Centers positioned strategically throughout Pennsylvania with regional headquarters in State College, the Lehigh Valley, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. All the Ben Franklin Centers support and execute the Commonwealth’s technology agenda by building on regional strengths, capitalizing on new opportunities and addressing the specific needs of our diverse communities. The program serves as a catalyst for economic growth by providing access to capital, business expertise and a network of resources that fosters innovation, growth and success.
Our pioneering organization has been embraced by all Pennsylvania governors and the Pennsylvania General Assembly since our inception in 1983 and remains the country’s gold standard for state and regional technology-based economic development programs.
