One year after opening its doors within the GoggleWorks Center for the Arts in downtown Reading, Pennsylvania, the Berks LaunchBox has already seen how innovation can spark economic development and generate momentum in the Greater Reading community.
Through the series of courses listed below, participants will be able to brainstorm, design, develop and test an idea for a new startup, or a new direction to improve an existing business, by identifying your assets and considering the opportunities around you.
The Penn State Berks LaunchBox, located within the GoggleWorks Center for the Arts in downtown Reading, Pennsylvania, will hold a Meetup titled “Global Entrepreneurship: Latin American Perspectives” from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 12.
The Berks LaunchBox is accepting members from the local community. Members will enjoy access to 3D printers, laptops, a laser cutter, and other high-tech equipment; training and education on equipment and software.
Penn State Berks alumnus Joe Sinclair just launched his third business — Verde Mantis, LLC, the first local company focused on bringing 3D printing or additive manufacturing to the masses with its latest product, the 3D Mantis Printer.
The Penn State Berks LaunchBox is hosting a series of events, including Marketing Mondays and Tinker Tuesdays, 2-7 p.m., throughout the month of July; a Laser Cutter Safety and Orientation course; and special interest meetups in the fall.
