The Pennsylvania Convention Center hosted a crowd of some 900 investors and stakeholders Thursday to celebrate the winners of the 2016 PACT Enterprise Awards.
Dean Miller, president and CEO of the Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT), mentioned in his opening remarks the surge in tech activity the city has recently seen.
Ten startups, companies and CEOs from the Greater Philadelphia Area were acknowledged for their work during the year, with a special accolade for investor John Martinson, who received the Enterprise Legend award for Lifetime Achievement.
