Register now for free – virtual iXchange 2021

Register now for the Ben Franklin iXchange, to be held virtually this year on Tuesday afternoon, May 18, 2021, at 3:30 to 5:00 PM. The event is free-of-charge to guests, and registration is required.

Ben Franklin’s annual iXchange is a premier business/technology event in northeastern Pennsylvania. The event provides an opportunity for regional leaders to exchange ideas and build relationships that result in the region’s growth and prosperity.

This year’s iXchange will include a welcome to new Ben Franklin President Angelo Valletta and a farewell to retiring CEO Chad Paul. We will present six innovation awards to early-stage technology companies, established manufacturers, and individuals who have helped Ben Franklin to advance the technology economy of northeastern Pennsylvania. The afternoon will conclude with on-line networking time. You will have an opportunity to greet Angelo and Chad, as well as to congratulate the Innovation Award winners.

Guests at the event are high-level and diverse, and include technology entrepreneurs, business people, economic developers, venture capitalists, regional influencers, political leaders, educators, students, bankers, lawyers, and accountants from our 21-county region. Hundreds attended our last in-person iXchange, and, with the ease of attending virtually, we expect another extremely successful year. Please join us for an informative and memorable afternoon.
