MUST READS

Is TicketLeap the new local entrepreneurial talent incubator? That’s what Tracey Welson-Rossman joked on the Philly Startup Leaders listserv last week, but the TechGirlz co-organizer and Chariot Solutions marketing officer has a point. Capography, the service that helps startups manage all their equity dealings and that was founded by TicketLeap CFO Tim Raybould, was profiled in TechCrunch last week.

Another (albeit new) TicketLeap staffer has a startup of his own: Carlton Bowers, one of the new TicketLeap interns, is a co-founder of Fanned Up, a social network for sports fans. Recently exited Venmo has roots at Ticketleap too, added PSL co-founder Chris Cera.

GIVE A GLANCE

Translation startup VerbalizeIt (previously Palmling), fresh off its graduation from TechStars Boulder, has a team of six and is looking to make three more major hires. Co-founder Ryan Frankel tells us the company is based in New York but its development team is still in Boulder and fellow co-founder Kunal Sarda remains in Philadelphia. Check out their Tech Stars demo day presentation here.

TruckyLove, the new face of geolocation startup Locengine, is getting some buzz around its pivot. The startup, which recently graduated from South Carolina accelerator Iron Yard, plans to act as a tracking service for food trucks. Check the company out on Zagat and Nibletz.

MIGHT BE WORTH YOUR TIME

Several local startups are vying for a chance to represent at South by Southwest 2013, including staffers from Curalate, Monetate and TicketLeap. Check out their talks and give them a vote on SXSW’s Panel Picker — voting goes till the end of this week.

Inhabi, the matchmaking service for renters and landlords founded by two former Venmo employees, is looking for new partners, we reported last week.

Startup Roundup will post weekly on Wednesdays until there’s not a Philly startup story left to link to on the Internet. See others here, or sign-up for its email newsletter
