Join us for an Innovation Leaders Speaker Series webinar event featuring RoseAnn Rosenthal, President and CEO of Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern Pennsylvania. She will discuss the importance of regional innovation ecosystems and examine how to catalyze a diverse regional economy to transition to one that embraces tech, entrepreneurship and innovation as its drivers.
Recognized by regional, national and international leaders as a pioneer of public-private partnerships and an invaluable resource for innovation-focused investment and growth in Greater Philadelphia, RoseAnn has over forty-five years of experience in economic development, business investment, and regional planning. With a current portfolio of over 200 technology companies, she has led Ben Franklin since 1996, growing its reputation and impact through innovative partnerships and a solid track record of seeding hundreds of southeastern Pennsylvania’s technology leaders across all areas of technology. RoseAnn helped design and launch the region’s Health Care Innovation Collaborative, an open innovation model unifying universities, corporations, investors, healthcare providers and insurers in development of new solutions; and catalyzed the development and launch of ImpactPHL, a regional alliance focused on growth of the Greater Philadelphia’s impact economy.
We also will enable an attendee networking forum for 30 minutes after the webinar.
