UP--Keynote (Live): George Steinmetz, Making a Living as a Freelancer (or when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro)
George Steinmetz, best known f­or his exploration photography, has a restless curiosity for the unknown: remote deserts, obscure cultures, and the ­mysteries of science and technology. A regular contributor to National Geographic and GE­O magazines, he has explored subjects ranging from the remotest str­etches of Arabia’s Empty Quarter to the­ unknown tree people of Irian Jaya. Since 1986, George has completed more than 40 major photo essays for National Geographic and 25 stories for GEO magazine in Germany. His expeditions to the Sahara and Gobi deserts have been featured in separate National Geographic Explorer programs. In 2006 he was awarded a grant by the National Science Foundation to document the work of scientists in the Dry Valleys and volcanos of Antarctica. George has won numerous awards for photography during his 25-year career, including two first prizes in science and technology from World Press Photo. He has also won awards and citations from Pictures of the Year, Overseas Press Club, and Life Magazine’s Alfred Eisenstaedt Awards, and was named National Geographic’s Adventurer of the year in 2008. Born in Beverly Hills in 1957, George graduated from Stanford University with a degree in geophysics. He began his career in photography after hitchhiking through Africa for 28 months. His current passion is photographing the world's deserts while piloting a motorized paraglider. This experimental aircraft enables him to capture unique images of the world inaccessible by traditional aircraft and most other modes of transportation. George lives in Glen Ridge, New Jersey, with his wife, Wall Street Journal editor Lisa Bannon, their daughter, Nell, and twin sons John and Nicholas.

The Penn State mHealth Challenge is a cross-college idea-pitch competition that pairs undergraduate students from the College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST) with those from the Department of Biobehavioral Health (BBH) in the College of Health and Human Development and the College of Nursing. Student teams work together to generate a mobile solution that addresses a societal health issue and then pitch their ideas to a panel of judges.

The IST students act as technology consultants working with BBH and nursing students to understand user needs. Together, teams mock up a mobile app that addresses the defined health need.

Come watch all 10 to12 teams pitch their ideas to a panel of industry judges. The top 4 to 6 teams will advance to the finals.

Wilkes-Barre--Entrepreneurial Spotlight Series
These quarterly events provide an opportunity for industry leaders and entrepreneurs in northeast Pennsylvania to meet, discuss, and identify potential partnerships. Each event will feature a 15-minute presentation from an entrepreneur outside the region.

Wilkes-Barre Connect is an initiative created to ensure that all entrepreneurs, start-ups, and existing businesses have access to the providers, services, and facilities they need to grow their business in northeastern Pennsylvania. Connect is designed to handle the needs of all businesses and industry sectors and requires no membership or fee – it is absolutely FREE to join.

The providers include the founding member organizations of Wilkes-Barre Connect: Wilkes University Small Business Development Center (SBDC); Family Business Alliance; Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Northeastern Pennsylvania; Allan P. Kirby Center for Free Enterprise & Entrepreneurship; Diamond City Partnership (DCP); Institute for Public Policy and Economic Development; and Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber (administer of the program).

The services delivered by the Wilkes-Barre Connect Providers include mentoring; trainings; networking; technical assistance, including business plan development, market research and feasibility, financial modeling, and marketing; and access to capital.

The facilities are the various types of spaces made available for businesses to locate, no matter where they are in the business life cycle, including incubators, office space, retail storefronts, and business parks. The Wilkes-Barre Connect initiative is housed within one of our downtown Wilkes-Barre facilities – the Wilkes-Barre THINK Center. The Wilkes-Barre THINK Center is a 6,000-square-foot media and technology center that features three specific components: Conference/Training Rooms, including the Penn State Conference Room; Co-Working Space; and a 45-seat Lecture and Media Hall. The Wilkes-Barre THINK Center will also serve as the home of various events, competitions, and trainings coordinated through Wilkes-Barre Connect. Both the THINK Center and Wilkes-Barre Connect will officially launch on November 14, to coincide with the start of Global Entrepreneurship Week. Starting that Monday, the Wilkes-Barre THINK Center will partner with Penn State Wilkes-Barre to unveil the five major components of the 2017 Greater Wilkes-Barre Connect work plan.

UP--Workshops: Digi Digits
Digi Digits is an interdisciplinary club of students at Penn State. We are dedicated to improving, designing, and 3D printing prosthetic-like training devices for children who have hand/arm malformations or disabilities. This club offers Penn State students the opportunity to develop critical thinking skills, participate in life-changing research, and expand their knowledge in the growing field of 3D printing as our organization combines corporate and family relations, business, engineering, architecture applications, and more.

Through the organization e-NABLE, Digi Digits establishes safe connections with children in need of a prosthetic training device. We cooperate with the family to print the device, but the work does not stop there! After printing the training device, we make sure to continue our relationship with the family as well as continue to make adjustments and improvements to the device.

As a club, Digi Digits aims to provide both physical and moral support to those transitioning into a medically certified prosthetic. Our designs are open source because we believe everybody should have the opportunity to improve their quality of life. We want to “lend a hand” in the biggest way possible!

Wilkes-Barre--Chamber Annual Dinner, “Innovation Delivered”
This year’s theme of “Innovation Delivered” will continue the focus of redesigning the infrastructure of Wilkes-Barre to encourage technological development in both existing companies and entrepreneurial ventures.

Wilkes-Barre Connect is an initiative created to ensure that all entrepreneurs, start-ups, and existing businesses have access to the providers, services, and facilities they need to grow their business in northeastern Pennsylvania. Connect is designed to handle the needs of all businesses and industry sectors and requires no membership or fee – it is absolutely FREE to join.

The providers include the founding member organizations of Wilkes-Barre Connect: Wilkes University Small Business Development Center (SBDC); Family Business Alliance; Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Northeastern Pennsylvania; Allan P. Kirby Center for Free Enterprise & Entrepreneurship; Diamond City Partnership (DCP); Institute for Public Policy and Economic Development; and Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber (administer of the program).

The services delivered by the Wilkes-Barre Connect Providers include mentoring; trainings; networking; technical assistance, including business plan development, market research and feasibility, financial modeling, and marketing; and access to capital.

The facilities are the various types of spaces made available for businesses to locate, no matter where they are in the business life cycle, including incubators, office space, retail storefronts, and business parks. The Wilkes-Barre Connect initiative is housed within one of our downtown Wilkes-Barre facilities – the Wilkes-Barre THINK Center. The Wilkes-Barre THINK Center is a 6,000-square-foot media and technology center that features three specific components: Conference/Training Rooms, including the Penn State Conference Room; Co-Working Space; and a 45-seat Lecture and Media Hall. The Wilkes-Barre THINK Center will also serve as the home of various events, competitions, and trainings coordinated through Wilkes-Barre Connect. Both the THINK Center and Wilkes-Barre Connect will officially launch on November 14, to coincide with the start of Global Entrepreneurship Week. Starting that Monday, the Wilkes-Barre THINK Center will partner with Penn State Wilkes-Barre to unveil the five major components of the 2017 Greater Wilkes-Barre Connect work plan.

"How To Create A Successful Franchise"

- divide the group into teams and give them the following challenge:

  • Describe in detail the type of person who will be your ideal candidate as the franchisee
  • Will you begin in the U.S. or another country and why

Women spend an estimated $20 trillion in annual consumer spending, but most of the world’s products are still being designed by predominantly male design teams. As such, many products on the market today don’t adequately address the unique problems that women may face in different aspects of their lives.

In this hands-on, teams of women and men will work through a design thinking sprint to create a prototype that better addresses a specific issue faced by female college students while using their mobile phone.

Wilkes-Barre--Wilkes-Barre Presents
A formalized process to introduce entrepreneurs, start-ups, and existing businesses to a regional investor network (angel network, VC’s, etc.), through a live-pitch event held on a quarterly basis at the THINK Center Lecture Hall. Interested parties will be vetted and then processed through a 3-month training program prior to participating in the pitch event.

The providers include the founding member organizations of Wilkes-Barre Connect: Wilkes University Small Business Development Center (SBDC); Family Business Alliance; Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Northeastern Pennsylvania; Allan P. Kirby Center for Free Enterprise & Entrepreneurship; Diamond City Partnership (DCP); Institute for Public Policy and Economic Development; and Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber (administer of the program).

The services delivered by the Wilkes-Barre Connect Providers include mentoring; trainings; networking; technical assistance, including business plan development, market research and feasibility, financial modeling, and marketing; and access to capital.

The facilities are the various types of spaces made available for businesses to locate, no matter where they are in the business life cycle, including incubators, office space, retail storefronts, and business parks. The Wilkes-Barre Connect initiative is housed within one of our downtown Wilkes-Barre facilities – the Wilkes-Barre THINK Center. The Wilkes-Barre THINK Center is a 6,000-square-foot media and technology center that features three specific components: Conference/Training Rooms, including the Penn State Conference Room; Co-Working Space; and a 45-seat Lecture and Media Hall. The Wilkes-Barre THINK Center will also serve as the home of various events, competitions, and trainings coordinated through Wilkes-Barre Connect. Both the THINK Center and Wilkes-Barre Connect will officially launch on November 14, to coincide with the start of Global Entrepreneurship Week. Starting that Monday, the Wilkes-Barre THINK Center will partner with Penn State Wilkes-Barre to unveil the five major components of the 2017 Greater Wilkes-Barre Connect work plan.

Wilkes-Barre--The Ins and Outs of Internships
Companies, both large and small, recognize the role that competitive internship programs can play in identifying and hiring talented graduates from local colleges and universities. With an increasing focus on, and clearer interpretation of, key elements of the Fair Labor Standards Act, it is more important than ever to have the right information and resources at hand when developing a quality internship.

In collaboration with the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce, Penn State Wilkes-Barre and Penn State Career Services will be hosting a breakfast panel discussion at the THINK Center in Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday, November 30, 2016. A panel of industry experts will talk about the benefits, challenges, and best practices involved in hosting internships.
