Lancaster’s Entrepreneurship Coalition is looking forward to supporting big ideas, local start-up companies, and future entrepreneurs in 2021. “Due to the pandemic, the Coalition spent the last year focused on business retention efforts,” said Marshall W. Snively, President of Lancaster City Alliance and co-founder of the Cultivate Lancaster Entrepreneurship Coalition. “This year we are getting back to our roots and refocusing on the start-up community,” said Snively.

This group of local business resource providers will also need to focus on fundraising. The Entrepreneurship Coalition was initially funded by a grant from the Lancaster County Community Foundation. It now relies on support of member organizations and sponsorship opportunities. For information on how you can support this effort, contact the coalition at
