Innovation Day

Innovation is our order of business at Lubin. Earlier this month, the Pace Entrepreneurship Studio (PES) hosted Innovation Day, a half-day event that promotes innovation and entrepreneurship in technology. Panel discussions and addresses featured tech and industry experts from companies such as Meta, Tawkify, Cozen O'Connor, AnD Ventures, Speedemissions, Gamr, and more. One message that came through loud and clear was that an entrepreneurial mindset leads to transformation and growth in business. Through PES, we are providing a launchpad for existing and aspiring entrepreneurs to let their ideas and innovative thinking lead the way.

Speaking of innovation and transformation, take a look at this issue of #LubinLife and see the myriad ways we are growing and leading on different fronts.
