The New York Times recently ran a front page story about the Lehigh Valley economy. A Bethlehem cosmetics company is the region’s fastest growing company for a third straight year. And an actress known for Orange is the New Black and True Blood is headlining a local event about entrepreneurship.
These were among the stories featured in the latest issue of LVstartup, a monthly e-newsletter about entrepreneurs and startups in the Lehigh Valley, which was released today.
Other featured stories include, among others:
- The Ben Franklin TechVentures business incubator celebrating its new West Wing
- Demolition starting on the $250 million Five City Center project in Allentown
- Lehigh University students connecting their athletic background with entrepreneurship
- Penn State Lehigh Valley offering a new degree in biobehavioral health.
The issue also spotlights several upcoming events, including the Ben Franklin Venture Idol 2017; the EUREKA! Ventures Competition hosted by Lehigh University’s Baker Institute; the Lehigh Valley Research Consortium’s State of Data in the Lehigh Valley; and the Southside Bethlehem KIZ Annual Update.
Additionally, LVstartup features a Lehigh Valley startup each month. This issue, the company is HAIRiette, a hair product line dedicated to serving the needs of women of all ethnicities with dry, curly, and coily hair, created by actress Tanya Wright.
