About Eastern Technology Council
The Eastern Technology Council was a membership-focused trade group charged with bringing together regional technology companies and leaders in sharing best practices, working together and forming a united perspective.
In April 2010, ETC and the Mid-Atlantic Capital Alliance, often called the MAC Alliance, merged to form what became PACT, the Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies, naming Dean Miller, a partner with Novitas Capital as part-time CEO.
Inspired by the larger Pittsburgh Technology Council that was founded in 1983, the ETC was launched seven years later when founders of Centocor Inc. and Safeguard Scientifics Inc. , Pete Musser, started what was first called the Technology Council of Greater Philadelphia in 1990.
