Carbondale Technology Transfer Center
The Carbondale Technology Transfer Center (CTTC), a business incubator located in Carbondale, PA, started by opening a 10,000 square foot facility in 1996. Because a need for space grew, the facility expanded to a total of 30,000 square feet in 2001. During February 2009, a 3,2000 square foot kitchen incubator, which currently has 15 approved tenants and one graduate company, was added. In addition, in December of 2015, we completed a 500 square foot Electronics Makerspace.
Since 1996, we have supported over 50 companies that have been tenants or off-site clients. As a result, well over 100 jobs were created.
Currently, the CTTC is the only stand alone nonprofit incubator in Northeastern Pennsylvania. We do not receive financial support from any Chamber of Commerce, University, or Economic Development organization, thus we act as a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. So, because our non-profit status, our organization operates with a 9 member Board of Directors drawn from the public and private sectors.
How Can The Carbondale Technology Transfer Center Help Your Business?
The Carbondale Technology Transfer Center operates a fully functional small business incubator, which is divided into Office (Technology Users), Light Industry, Mixed-Use, Kitchen, and Electronics Incubator sections. Importantly, this set-up allows us to serve technology-oriented, light industry, light assembly, food production, electronic manufacturing, and computer companies. Included in the Makerspace are workbenches, shelving, and three machines that allow for the manufacturing of prototypes or small lots of electronic circuit boards. As a result, this space helps technology startups protect intellectual property by allowing them to produce prototypes and small quantity runs domestically rather than relying on overseas producers. Recently, a 3D Printer was added to the facility.
In addition to space, we also provide business assistance services traditionally associated with a business incubator including Business Plans, Market Studies, Loan Proposals. Our existing agreement with the University of Scranton’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) supports the provisions of many of these services, augmented by CTTC online staff.
