Founder Factory: will you be there? Here’s a little incentive …


Are you ready to be there when Philly Startup Leaders unleashes the potential of Philadelphia’s startup community?

At PSL’s Founder Factory event (Thursday December 10, 9am-5pm at the Chemical Heritage Foundation), founders, mentors, angels, VC’s, students, government groups, and partners will be coming together for a day of collaborative learning and community building.

With a speaking lineup of experienced founders, CEO’s and early stage leaders who have built successful companies, it will be an engaging day you don’t want to miss. You will leave the event with new tips and tricks you can put into action in your startup right away.

Here’s why we’ll be there:

1. Stellar lineup: Several of our portfolio companies (CloudMine, ROARforGood, Monetate, Setvi, TicketLeap) will be talking about how they are turning innovative ideas into profitable companies. Ben Franklin’s own President and CEO RoseAnn B. Rosenthal will be sharing an overview on the Philly tech scene.

2. Investor lunch: Ryan Fitzgerald and Alan Kraus will be there, along with 10 other local active investors. Several other members of our team will be around as well. Look out for the handsome man with a camera and make sure he snaps a photo of your team.

3. Happy hour: Yes, we do love National Mechanics. AND we also hear PSL leadership will be announcing their new president. We can’t say who it is yet, but the inside scoop is very good news. Editor’s note: it’s probably best that it’s not Tuesday karaoke hour: our Boyz II Men chops still need a little work.

Some other exciting highlights: Snack time with six local food entrepreneurs, 3D printed keychains made by NextFab and – wait for it – flavored cream cheese for breakfast! (Hey, what says “Brand Philly” more than cream cheese? Sometimes it’s the little things that can make a day shine).
