The mission of the Chamber is very simple — to attract, sustain, and grow business. For the moment, I would like to focus on the word “grow.” When we speak of growing business, we generally focus on the entrepreneurial environment, namely working with and encouraging start-up and emerging businesses. In that regard, we provide a variety of services, such as networking among fellow Chamber members, incubator space in our Scranton Enterprise and TekRidge Centers, educational programs and access to funding and technical assistance, just to name a few. In this issue of Momentum, we spotlight the new e-sports program at Lackawanna College. Could this group of tech-savvy students include the next entrepreneurial superstar who will grow the must- have technology of the future? If so, your Chamber will be there to help them grow. 2 • The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce The entrepreneurial ecosystem in our region is strong, particularly with respect to emerging firms in the technology sector. Our outstanding regional higher education institutions are hotbeds of young, intelligent, and creative minds that have the potential to launch the next Google, Amazon, or Apple. AP
