Penn State Lehigh Valley LaunchBox

Penn State Lehigh Valley students from the race and ethnic relations class taught by Jennifer Parker Talwar spent Feb. 24 at Velocity in downtown Allentown interviewing Lehigh Valley entrepreneurs about global and local business practices, international trajectories, creative capital and work-family visions. This project is a research-based initiative intended to reinvent the classroom in a real world environment while bringing together students, business owners and community partners. This semester, Parker’s class will be utilizing Penn State Lehigh Valley’s co-working space in Velocity for its business accelerator, Lehigh Valley LauncBox, which is a signature program of Invent Penn State.
