Nurturing and mentoring start-up companies is not a new concept – but finding the right level of support can often be a challenge. The Erie Technology Incubator serves Northwest Pennsylvania with a unique blend of strategic guidance, dedicated mentor teams, 1:1 coaching, and networking opportunities. We provide early stage technology-enabled companies with critical resources and support to guide them during this challenging phase.
