Altitude Marketing, an integrated marketing agency serving technology-focused B2B companies and manufacturers, is proud to again be sponsoring Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Northeastern PA’s iXchange.
The event will take place on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at 4:30 PM at Lehigh University’s Zoellner Arts Center.
“This year’s iXchange is particularly exciting as it falls on Altitude’s 15-year anniversary. Ben Franklin was our first client when Altitude was founded in 2004, and like hundreds of companies around the Commonwealth, we wouldn’t be where we are today without their early support,” said Altitude Marketing President Andrew Stanten.
“iXchange is by far the best tech networking event in the region. More importantly, I hope each of our elected officials can attend this year and see firsthand the significant impact Ben Franklin has on our start-up community,” Stanten continues. “By talking with company leaders who have benefited from Ben Franklin assistance and learning how, for each $1 the state invests in Ben Franklin, the organization returns $3.90 to the state economy, I hope those in Harrisburg will provide the necessary funding.”
“All of us benefit from Ben Franklin’s outstanding work fueling the technology-based economic development that we so desperately need for Pennsylvania to stay competitive.”
Ben Franklin’s annual iXchange event brings together technology entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, educators and other business and community leaders to celebrate significant technological advancements, and the people and organizations that devote their work to enhancing the economy in northeastern Pennsylvania.
In addition to a networking session and the presentation of the 2019 Innovation Awards, iXchange will welcome keynote speaker, Seth Mattison, Founder of Luminate Labs – offering his perspective on the relationship among the five generations currently in the workforce and how it relates to the future of work, talent, and innovation.
