Investing in Pennsylvania’s future.

The statewide Ben Franklin Technology Partners Network supports and executes the Commonwealth’s technology agenda, builds on regional strengths, capitalizes on new opportunities, and addresses the specific needs of Pennsylvania’s diverse communities.


Since 1983, the 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.


Positioned strategically throughout the state with regional headquarters in the Lehigh Valley, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and State College, BFTP serves as a driver of economic growth by providing access to capital, business expertise, and a network of resources that foster innovation, growth, and success.


The success of our organization is based on our overarching statewide mission custom-executed to the specific needs of areas through four centers that understand and participate in their regional economies.
