Ben Franklin News

Happy 30th Birthday, Ben Franklin!

In December 1982, 30 years ago, then Governor Dick Thornburgh signed legislation establishing the Ben Franklin Partnership Fund. That foresight resulted in the creation and retention of thousands of well-paid, sustainable jobs for Pennsylvanians. Ben Franklin Technology Partners significantly contributes to the Commonwealth’s economy, helping to create hundreds of early-stage technology firms, and supporting established manufacturers through technology. Happy birthday to the Ben Franklin Technology Partners, and sincere thanks to our clients, alumni, and partners who have helped make the Ben Franklin vision a reality.
