Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Central & Northern PA (BFTP/CNP) provides startup funding not only for potential tech-entrepreneurs and small manufacturers at the earliest stages of their concept development, but we also invest in innovative, entrepreneurial development programs that mentor and support emerging startups.
Activities and programs that accelerate a region’s early-stage deal flow help create an environment that allows those who have considered starting a tech-business to explore the likelihood of success with the benefit of professional guidance. For example, emerging entrepreneurs who participate in our 10-week business startup boot camps are more likely to make an educated decision on how to move forward with their business concept and learn how to apply for startup funding.
Successful participants receive stipends to assist with initial prototyping and customer discovery expenses as well as initial legal and accounting advice. Our participants have the opportunity to pitch their business concepts to a panel of local professionals with the possibility of winning prizes totaling $10,000.
