Schuylkill Haven, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today visited Penn State Schuylkill’s LionLaunch Innovation Hub, a co-working space for innovators, to highlight entrepreneurship opportunities in Pennsylvania.

“Places like this are important for helping to drive innovation and entrepreneurship, not just in Schuylkill County, but statewide,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “I am committed to continuing to provide vital support to our talented entrepreneurs by implementing initiatives to improve our university partnerships and workforce training opportunities.”

The governor was led on a tour of the facility by university officials and was joined by state and local leaders. While at the innovation hub, the governor met with students, entrepreneurs, and business mentors who have benefited from the co-working space.

“We were honored that Governor Wolf visited our campus’ innovation hub to learn about the benefits and support that our LionLaunch program offers to the budding entrepreneurs of Schuylkill County,” said Darcy Medica, interim chancellor for Penn State Schuylkill. “Our space is one of nearly 20 such Penn State facilities located across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The common goal of this initiative, Invent Penn State, is to spur economic development, create jobs, and impact student career success.”

Launched in 2015 to help innovators succeed at each stage of the entrepreneurial path, Invent Penn State is a commonwealth-wide initiative to spur economic development, job creation, and student career success, with a focus on bringing intellectual properties to the marketplace.
