Berks Alliance Spotlight on Penn State Launchbox

June 9th Via Zoom Noon to 1 PM

The Penn State Berks LaunchBox is a business accelerator located in downtown Reading working with entrepreneurs and new businesses.

The Berks LaunchBox offers business accelerator programs, mentoring, coworking space for startups, makerspace with equipment for prototyping, and webinars focused on developing a business. The goal of the Berks LaunchBox is to assist early-stage entrepreneurs and startup companies with the tools and resources they need to launch and grow in Greater Reading.  Over the past five years, they have provided classes, seminars or workshops to entrepreneurs and start-up business leaders. In 2021, over half of their clientele were returning program participants and nearly half were minority entrepreneurs.

The Berks program is part of a network of Launchboxes across the state, hosted by Penn State.  It is also a vital partner in a local collaboration to create a more comprehensive and diverse entrepreneurial ecosystem for start-up businesses in our region.

This year, the Berks Launchbox celebrates its 5th year of serving our community, having supported 272 emerging businesses and raising over $2.4 million to support this work, helping these business enterprises be a force for social, economic and environmental change in our community.

When: Jun 9, 2022, 12:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
