Some Lehigh Valley companies are about to get a big boost as they work to mitigate the spread of coronavirus. Pennsylvania’s Ben Franklin Technical Development Authority announced in April it awarded $1 million to each of the four Ben Franklin Technology Partners to support affected companies. Each of the statewide centers is matching the $1 million with its own $1 million contribution.
Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Northeastern Pennsylvania serves start-ups and established businesses in and around the Lehigh Valley. Many of these clients are already working to aid the community in the fight against coronavirus, including Applied Separations Inc., B. Braun Medical Inc., Game Face Grooming, LifeAire Systems LLC, OraSure Technologies Inc., ProtoCAM, Verde Mantis LP, US Specialty Formulations LLC, and VaxForm LLC.
