Helping Businesses Grow

in Northeastern Pennsylvania


The Wilkes-Barre Connect program, powered by the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business & Industry, aligns you and your business with appropriate providers, services, and locations to meet the goals and objectives defined within your strategy. Entrepreneurs, veterans, interns, financing, and education were selected as our five areas of focus because we understand the value, talent and opportunity that lie within each. Whether you’re interested in becoming a member or attending an event, Wilkes-Barre Connect offers something for everyone. Monthly educational courses led by connect partners are tailored to meet each group’s specific needs, events are designed to connect you to peers and executives within your industry and so much more.
