Our Initiatives

Our Initiatives

Built from focused needs for focused outcomes, our initiatives connect the programs, organizations, individuals, and knowledge that can accelerate a company’s progress—while bringing meaningful growth to our region. As part of our Circle of BENefits, companies and partners have access to this complete suite of powerful resources for building enterprises, developing our community, and pioneering the growth of new technologies.


Investment Partnerships

Whether focused on impact, region, sector, or institution-focused goals, our investment partnerships strengthen our partner organizations and support shared objectives by leveraging Ben Franklin’s best-in-class practices for investment in and support for early-stage companies. Each deploys capital both from partners and Ben Franklin, and connects companies and partners to our larger network of resources, sharing each partner’s mission throughout the region and beyond while garnering shared desired outcomes with visibility and impact.
