SLIBCO Awards Grant to Incubator Client

SLIBCO, the industrial development arm of The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce, recently awarded Business Incubator Client Sho Technology Solutions a grant for continued operating expenses.

Funding for the grant was given through a “Discovered in PA, Developed in PA” (D2PA) grant from tecBRIDGE’s Incubator Support Program in the amount of $1,700. TecBRIDGE’s Incubator Support Program assists between 10 and 20 early stage companies with funding for office space, marketing and sales support with the ultimate goal of strengthening both entrepreneurial efforts and incubator facilities in our region.

“SLIBCO is very pleased to have been able to assist Sho Technology Solutions through tecBRIDGE and their incubator support program,” said Aaron Whitney, incubator program manager. “Jason Washo and his team are a great addition to our program and we know this grant will assist them in their continued efforts to grow and add jobs to our community. We are excited by the continued success of this program, as well as the success of our incubator program and of local entrepreneurship.”

Owned by Jason Washo, Sho Technology Solutions is a software company located in The Chamber’s Business Incubator at the Scranton Enterprise Center that focuses on software solutions for its clients, including maintenance, sales, consulting and development. Sho also creates and hosts Android, iOS and Windows applications supported by private and public cloud servers.

Thanks to this program, I have expanded my company more than I could have imagined. I am honored to have received this grant.”
