J.D. Brown Center and CPBJ Partnership
In 2011, the J.D.Brown Center for Entrepreneurship at York College of Pennsylvania began a partnership with the Central Penn Business Journal to bring the Entrepreneurship Central PA Conference to the college. The event is an opportunity for attendees to not only learn from successful entrepreneurs from our region, but also to network with the people that are helping the economy in Central PA flourish.
The J.D. Brown Center for Entrepreneurship is a hub for innovation and entrepreneurial activity at York College. The Center offers local businesses and start-ups the opportunity to tap into the intellectual capital of YCP's professors, the energy and skill of its students and a first-class network of business people to help businesses grow.
