YOU’RE INVITED!

THE CANDY FACTORY IS THE PLACE TO BE ON AUGUST 15, 2018!

 LANCASTER, PA – Why did dozens of people located in Lancaster and Lebanon counties enter Ben Franklin’s BIG IDEA Contest? Because they wanted to WIN!  The prize money to be awarded, which totals $50,000, will help get an enterprising entrepreneur from startup to UP and running.  In addition, the business mentoring, training opportunities, networking, and six month free membership to the BF TechCelerator@TheCandyFactory is just as valuable as the cash.

Come to hear the finalists make their pitches to a team of local judges but stay to network, enjoy the reception, and congratulate the winner!

When:             August 15, 2018 – Presentations begin at 2:30 PM.

(The winner will be announced at 6:00 PM)

Where:            The Candy Factory – 342 North Queen Street, Lancaster, PA

*A catered networking reception will follow the presentations
