Investing in New Student

Companies at Universities

The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development awarded University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown $500,000 to work in collaboration with Bucknell and Penn State to foster undergraduate entrepreneurship.


As part of the "Discovered in PA - Developed in PA" Initiative, the goal of Inc. U is to develop an environment for student start-ups across campuses and the region through "Shark Tank" like pitch competitions and coordinated University programs and resources.

Students in the program will have access to a network of entrepreneurial tools. Each university will host events and provide information about on-site resources for students. Find more information about what is offered at each university by following the links below.
