Launched in 2015 by Penn State President Eric Barron, Invent Penn State is a $30 million initiative that redefined the University’s land-grant mission to include entrepreneurship and innovation programs, tools and resources that accelerate the movement of great ideas to the marketplace and make a substantial economic development impact in Pennsylvania and beyond.

“The aim of Invent Penn State is to drive job creation, economic development, and student career success by connecting researchers with the people who can help bring their discoveries to the marketplace,” Barron has said. “Penn State is developing a culture that encourages, nurtures and rewards entrepreneurship in all fields of study.”
