Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern Pennsylvania (BFTP/SEP) stimulates economic growth through innovation, entrepreneurship and the development and adoption of new technologies. Through its state network of resources, the organization fosters dynamic relationships among companies, institutional and private investors, research institutions and the university community.
The Institute for Hepatitis and Virus Research (IHVR) is a designated Ben Franklin Innovations Center because of its strong commitment to biotechnology entrepreneurship and promotion of academic-commercial partnerships. Its resources and scientists are made available to biotech and hi-tech start-up firms in the area to maximize collaborative efforts. The IHVR also actively encourages bio- and high-tech companies outside of the area to learn more about what Bucks County and the Southeastern Pennsylvania region has to offer.
As a designated Ben Franklin Innovations Center, the IHVR biotechnology programs are funded, in part, by a grant from Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern Pennsylvania.
