Where Do Entrepreneurs Work Smart and Live Happy?

first_imgWhere Do Entrepreneurs Work Smart and Live Happy? By: Dennis Davin, Secretary of Community and Economic Development Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf   SHARE  TWEET September 23, 2016 Economy,  Education,  Innovation,  The Blog Pennsylvania is a place where entrepreneurs and business owners flourish and succeed — and State College’s recent ranking as one of Entrepreneur magazine’s “Top 15 Best U.S. Cities for Entrepreneurs to Live and Launch” confirms just that. Listed among other innovation hotbeds, including Boulder, Minneapolis, and Ann Arbor, State College boasts an 18 percent business growth rate, is home to Pennsylvania’s largest university, Penn State, and is supported by various programs in the region such as the Ben Franklin TechCelerator @State College.Penn State offers a healthy and robust entrepreneurial ecosystem, stemming in part from its degree offerings like Corporate Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Another support is the “Invent Penn State” initiative, launched in 2015 to help innovators succeed at each stage of the entrepreneurial path. Leveraging Penn State’s size, scope, and research strengths, Invent Penn State is a commonwealth-wide initiative to spur economic development, job creation, and student career success, with a focus on bringing intellectual properties to the marketplace. Penn State President Eric Barron has committed $30 million to this program, opening 13 entrepreneurship centers in the initiative’s first year. And this is just the beginning — I can’t wait to see its lasting economic impact across Pennsylvania.Further adding the State College’s entrepreneur ecosystem the Governor’s Action Team recently worked with Morgan Advanced Materials, a UK-based leader in engineered carbon and ceramic materials, to announce a partnership with Penn State that will establish The Carbon Science Center of Excellence (COE). This site is the first of its kind in the U.S. that will serve as a new research and development center focused on driving developments in the field of carbon research. Housed at Penn State’s Innovation Park, the Carbon Science Center of Excellence will support and cultivate the innovative efforts of both Morgan and Penn State for years to come.While State College and Penn State have found success in the center of our state, I’m proud to say this is only one example of many strong university-industry collaborations in Pennsylvania. Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network recently awarded Lehigh University in the Lehigh Valley a $200,000 grant to inspire and encourage an entrepreneurial spirit in undergraduate engineering students, with an end goal of benefiting society. In South Central Pennsylvania, Dickinson College runs “The Idea Fund,” a student-led incubator that provides seed money to students to help them jumpstart change in their communities. And in the Southwestern part of the state, Carnegie Mellon’s Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship has helped greenlight more than 1,000 companies across a variety of industries.Pennsylvania’s support for entrepreneurs goes far beyond our colleges and universities. My agency, the Department of Community and Economic Development, offers an extensive and experienced network that can provide assistance at each step of the entrepreneurial journey:Our Small Business Champion Network provides free, practical advice, and services as the first stop for individuals who have new business ideas.The Partnerships for Regional Economic Performance partners are our boots on the ground; they help companies start, grow, and prosper in their local communities.For entrepreneurs looking to break into new international markets, our Office of International Business Development is an excellent resource.Tech companies will find funding and technical expertise from our Ben Franklin Technology Partners.Our Entrepreneur’s Guide is a comprehensive roadmap offering guidance on everything from business names to growth strategies.Last, but certainly not least, even entrepreneurs need some down time to relax, recharge, pursue their hobbies (or explore new ones!). Here in Pennsylvania, they can find an unparalleled mix of urban, historic, and outdoor adventures awaiting them. It truly is a wonderful place to work smart and live happy.All corners of our state offer vibrant communities and business assistance resources that are ready to bring your big idea to life.

first_imgLast updated on May 15th, 2019 at 04:49 pmAfter a false start last year, the Town of Sheboygan is hoping to secure a large-scale commercial development on 99 acres of farmland near Interstate 43 and Highway 42.Aerial image of the site near I-43 and Highway 42 in the Town of Sheboygan.The town has issued a request for proposals for the Beuchel Farms property at 4305 N. 40th St.. Town officials are seeking a development partner who could link the site to the existing retail development along Highway 42 just west of the site.The town was working with Chattanooga-based real estate developer, Hutton, in 2017 on a mixed-use project and entered into an agreement with the property owner for a 5-year option to purchase the property. That project has not moved forward due to changing market conditions; however, the option is still in effect, according to the RFP.The site consists of seven parcels surrounded by single-family residential in the city of Sheboygan to the east, multifamily developments to the north and commercial to the south and west.“The Town of Sheboygan has a track record of working successfully to approve large and small scale developments,” the RFP states. “Previous successful developments include Wal-Mart, Menards, and Muth Mirror Systems, Inc. The town has been among the fastest growing areas in (Sheboygan County).”The town of Sheboygan has its own municipal water and sanitary sewer systems. Due to its size, the town is one of only a few in the state with the legal authority to create a tax incremental financing (TIF) district identical to those used by other Wisconsin cities and villages.According to the RFP, town officials are willing to consider the use of special assessments to finance utilities or other creative public-private partnerships that are mutually beneficial.Responses to the RFP are due by Jan. 18.  Get our email updatesBizTimes DailyManufacturing WeeklyNonprofit WeeklyReal Estate WeeklySaturday Top 10Wisconsin Morning Headlines Subscribelast_img read more
