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.
Berks criminal justice students and youth from the RIZE program recently met at the GoggleWorks Center in Reading. The purpose of the meeting was to have an open discussion -- through artistic media -- about social justice issues in the city of Reading.
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.
