Penn State Shenango Opens Start-Up Incubator

TCT Magazine reports on a new development coming out of Penn State Shenango, which is a Commonwealth Campus of Pennsylvania State University.  Earlier last month, Penn State Shenango “opened a business incubator which comprises of two start-up companies and a pair of 3D printing machines.”

This VenturePointe Incubator is located in Germitage, Pennsylvania, and was “launched after a $50,000 seed grant from Invent Penn State, a Commonwealth-wide initiative focused on entrepreneurial endeavors.”

“VenturePointe has welcomed two start-ups, Guardians Nest and ATP Resources…Guardians Nest is a non-profit organization and was conceived by Penn State Shenango’s human development and studies graduate, Brian Flick.  His aim is to create a social services, information, and referral hub to the 11,000 U.S. Veterans residing in Mercer County.  Meanwhile, ATP Resources, led by Jacob Linzenbold, a recent Penn State business major, will harness 3D printing to develop and distribute medical devices.”

As Penn State President Dr. Eric Barron explains: “the community support for VenturePointe has been extraordinary, and it has created the type of entrepreneurial environment needed for breakthrough innovations.  This is what we envisioned when we launched Invent Penn State nearly two years ago, and I’m thrilled to celebrate the early success with our Shenango students, faculty, staff, and community.”
