The virtuous are the collaborative ones.
After announcing our one-year birthday here at Technically Philly and following for the past few months the insightful and experienced content coming from the entrepreneurs at Start Philly, our two organizations have decided to form a bit of a working relationship.
We met last week inside a Sansom Street restaurant and got familiar over drafts of Yards and comped whiskey. By the end of the night, we had an understanding.
In the coming weeks, you just might start seeing three things.
- A monthly submission on these pages from the Start Philly crew, including founders John Cappiello and Max Sobol.
- Occasional content sharing in which we grab a graf or two from each other’s startup coverage and direct readers to that other site for the rest.
- Other possible partnerships and other general hand-holding, perhaps around content, events or promotion.
We bring a wider audience and more comprehensive coverage, and the Start Philly team brings more experience in the entrepreneurial world in town.
Our two sites will experiment with what seems to work best. Mostly, we’re trying to embody the spirit of collaboration that is slowly becoming a staple quality of Philadelphia’s technology, startup and innovation communities.
So whatcha think?
