Erie Innovation District
Secure Erie Accelerator Companies Look to Call Erie Home
Over the past several decades, Erie, PA has seen significantly more job outflow than inflow, particularly in the manufacturing sector. The Erie Innovation District, however, is trying to reverse this trend.
The Secure Erie Accelerator, a program conducted by the Erie Innovation District in partnership with Singularity University, has attracted startup companies in the cyber security and IoT space to the city for a 10-week program that includes mentorship, funding and opportunities to partner with local companies and organizations.
Only a short time in the program, some companies are already expressing a willingness to stay in Erie, which could create new jobs and opportunities for the community.
