STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- The TechCelerator @State College is inviting area entrepreneurs to participate in the next 10-Week Boot Camp for business startups. This program has launched 20 companies in the first two years. The sessions run from 3 to 5 p.m. on 10 successive Tuesdays from April 8 to June 10.

Participants could receive as much as $1,000 toward legal and accounting startup costs and will have the chance to pitch business idea to a panel of entrepreneurs at the completion of the course. The top presenter will receive $10,000 to help get the business off the ground. Business mentoring from Ben Franklin’s Transformation Business Services Network and Penn State’s Small Business Development Center staff will be available at no cost. You’ll come away from this experience with a list of best practices, lessons-learned and a valuable toolbox that will help you start your own tech business.

The Boot Camp is free. For more information, contact Don McCandless at 814-865-2040 or
