Statewide Ben Franklin Network
For more than 30 years, Ben Franklin Technology Partners (BFTP) has been one of the most highly regarded programs in the country dedicated to growing a state’s technology-based economy. The success of our organization is based on our overarching statewide mission custom-executed to the specific needs of areas by four centers that understand and participate in their regional economies.
Positioned strategically throughout the state—with regional headquarters in the Lehigh Valley, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and State College—BFTP supports and executes the Commonwealth’s technology agenda, builds on regional strengths, capitalizes on new opportunities and addresses the specific needs of our diverse communities. We serve as catalysts for economic growth by providing access to capital, business expertise and a network of resources that fosters innovation, growth and success.
