About Greater Reading
Keystone Innovation Zone

The Greater Reading Keystone Innovation Zone fosters local job growth by aiding entrepreneurs, newly formed startup companies, and mature companies identify and capitalize on new ideas and opportunities.

The program creates a "knowledge neighborhood" in which educational institutions, economic developers, businesses, capital sources, and community leaders can connect with one another quickly and effectively to provide a network of support and resources.
