Local small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs are invited to expand their knowledge with the Penn State Mont Alto LaunchBox program coming to Greencastle in 2024.
The Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce will host the Mont Alto Launchbox at the Chamber office on the first and third Tuesday of the month from 1 to 4 p.m. starting February 6.
