What is your Big Idea for Philadelphia?
Silicon Philly! City of Innovation & Opportunity
A great environment is one of unbridled enthusiasm about starting companies and innovation. People involved in the Philly tech scene know that the excitement is palpable. Events around the city like Philly Tech Meetup are brimming with entrepreneurs. People active in the design and startup community know that chance plays a big part in success, especially when it comes to meeting people who can move your company forward. With the recent relocation of First Round Capital to University City, the boom of Philly area startups such as Monetate, Duck Duck Go and Warby Parker and the abundance of colleges in the area, the chances of a beneficial encounter are increasingly likely. All else equal, these two factors will lead to a city that nurtures, encourages and grows its entrepreneurs.
