PNA LaunchPad

PNA LaunchPad is the first statewide pilot program connecting early stage digital startups and local media companies.  Through LaunchPad, media-related startups can connect with customers by offering free or reduced-fee products for some period of time, and media companies benefit from new technologies and revenue streams to better position themselves for the future.  Pennsylvania is the perfect environment for the LaunchPad, with more family-owned newspapers (who are willing and able to experiment) than any other state in the country!
