Jill Edwards

Executive Director of Ben Franklin Venture Investment Forum

Jill Edwards started her career as a banker, before taking a job managing the CYBER Center business incubator in York. That organization introduced her to Ben Franklin Technology Partners (they were a funder). In 2002, she started working for the Ben Franklin Venture Investment Forum (BFVIF), and has been working with Ben Franklin clients and companies ever since.

Edwards is now executive director of both BFVIF and the Innovation Transfer Network. She is also project manager for the BIG IDEA Business Plan Contests, a vital tool for emerging startups in Central and Northern Pennsylvania. Keystone Edge chatted with Edwards about her role and the growing economic opportunities in the region.
