We’ll make two promises to you, Philadelphia: One, to do the best we can to host events worthy of your time. And two, we’ll never again hold an event during a once-in-a-lifetime postseason performance.

In our first ever Switch, Zecozi, Packlate, P’unk Ave, Azavea and Orpheus Media Research showed off their products for an audience of over 160 people at the Levitt Auditorium. And, judging by some of the feedback, the companies won some new fans and maybe landed a few business deals.

TP readers even have two chances to win some shwag:

  • Use the code “SWITCH” when signing up for Packlate and receive $25 off your first booking. The more signups that use that code, the more the coupon will be worth.
  • Azavea is giving away a couple of $100 gift certificates to local restaurants for people who leave them feedback on Common Space. Click the “Share your thoughts” button for your chance to win.

Stay tuned for more information from last night, and we’ll post the video of each presentation as fast as we can edit it.

Thank you

Some thank yous are in order. First and foremost, thanks to the 160-plus people who came out. We’re grateful for every reader and event attendee at Technically Philly. Secondly, thanks to the five demoing companies: Zecozi, Packlate, P’unk Ave, Azavea and Orpheus Media Research.

And of course, a big thanks to our sponsors: First Round Capital, Genacast Ventures, The University City Science Center,MCD Law Partners, VC Deal Lawyer, The Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, Corzo Center for the Creative Arts, and University of the Arts.

      For the general public, you should all know that John Steele is a smart ass.

      That is TP’s photo and we so graciously allowed Flying Kite to take the same photo, after we brought out speakers together.

      John will be making this up to us by buying us a beer.
