Beaver Valley LaunchBox: Matching Gift Opportunity
Invent Penn State, a University-wide initiative, situates economic development and entrepreneurship at the very core of the Penn State mission. It seeks to leverage the University’s research, knowledge, and entrepreneurial spirit to help citizens of the Commonwealth who wish to commercialize discoveries and technologies, address important societal problems, and improve the lives of people here in Pennsylvania and around the world.
To bring the Invent Penn State initiative to Beaver students and faculty, as well as the Beaver County community, our campus has established the Beaver Valley LaunchBox, powered by Penn State Beaver. The Penn State Beaver LaunchBox is the programming arm of Invent Penn State that acts as a small-business accelerator and provides comprehensive support for early stage entrepreneurs, with microgrants, business development resources, co-working space, and expert mentors tailored to each company's most urgent needs.
Support for the Beaver Valley LaunchBox is truly an investment in the strength of our local economy and our future. And, through the LaunchBox Matching Program, your gift will be matched 1:1 from Penn State to create a permanent program endowment in your name. You may pay your gift over five years, and the University match will be transferred to the endowment in full when your commitment is signed.
To arrange your gift plans for the Beaver Valley LaunchBox, contact Colleen Sherman, director of campus development, at (724) 773-3558 or [email protected].
