Listen to presentations on Philadelphia’s economy and you’re due for two big themes: its manufacturing past and its knowledge-driven future, highlighted by a battle to attract and retain new innovators.

That rang true across nine lightning talks at an economy-focused State of Young Philadelphia event, as organized by decade-old, civic-minded nonprofit Young Involved Philadelphia in the basement of the Kimmel Center Thursday.

Check some takeaways and slides from the event, attended by some 30 for another in the installment of the wide-ranging, annual event series.
