State Sen. John Blake (D-Lackawanna/Luzerne/Monroe) applauded the investment of more than $170,000 by the Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Northeastern Pennsylvania (BFTP/NEP) in regional economic development projects. The investment funding is designed to develop and grow early-stage technology-oriented companies; to help established manufacturers creatively apply new technology and business practices; and to promote an innovative community-wide infrastructure.

“I applaud the BFTP/NEP Board of Directors for their dedication to bringing early-stage investment back to Lackawanna County,” Sen. Blake said. “This program has been critically important to our economy and continues to make smart investments that develop and grow our innovative local businesses.” More:
