    Created in March 2000, the Great Valley Technology Alliance (GVTA) is a regional, public-private partnership designed to facilitate the development of a knowledge-based, technology-focused economy for Northeastern Pennsylvania. The alliance is affiliated with the Great Valley Pennsylvania Angel Network (GV-PAN), a group of affiliated investors who provide early-stage financing to regional start-up businesses. Each member of GV-PAN makes his or her own investment decisions and must be an accredited investor. The group meets on a quarterly basis to review business plans, and to network with firms looking for Angel investments. In addition to its affiliation with GV-PAN, GVTA participates in several other programs including The Great Valley Business Plan Competition, which provides the winning team a $125,000 cash prize to launch their tech-based company, and the Entrepreneurship Institute, which is a three-day interactive workshop.
