Introduced is one more reason you should head up to Philly Tech Week

A new conference called Introduced, aimed at all markets, takes place May 3. Here's why you should go.

We’re still over half a year away from Delaware Innovation Week (which is going to be epic this year — more on that down the line), but Philly Tech Week,’s oldest and biggest event, is right around the corner, from April 27–May 5.

And this year it includes a brand-new conference involving all markets, Introduced, to be held at the Science History Institute (formerly known as the Chemical Heritage Foundation) on May 3.

Why would you go up to Philly for Tech Week events when we have our own hyperlocal Innovation Week? Why wouldn’t you? It’s nearby, it’s relevant and it can help you expand your regional network. Not just between Delaware and Philly, but with our other markets (Baltimore, Brooklyn and D.C.), too.

There are dozens of Philly Tech Week events in all (check out the full calendar here), including forums, dev workshops, panels and parties. If you can only make it to Philly for one event, though, it should be Introduced.

Introduced is something new for PTW: A “choose your own adventure” conference with three rooms of simultaneous programming covering three themes:

  • GROW (Tracks: Business & Sciences)
  • MESSAGE (Tracks: Media & Creative)
  • IMPACT (Tracks: Civic & Access)

You can go straight down one track, or mix it up throughout the day — we know everyone isn’t entirely focused on one thing.

You’ll have access to tons of influencers, including Mac Nagaswami, founder of Wilmington’s Carvertise, who will join other founders from each market for “RealLIST 2018: Growing Your Startup Outside Of Silicon Valley,” one of the 24 panels on the agenda.

In addition to the panels, Introduced will feature a rotating demo floor and curated introductions, where you can:


  • Meet and get advice from founders including Morgan Berman of MilkCrate, Liz Brown of Webjunto and Sylvester Mobley of Coded by Kids
  • Pitch your product or service to purchasing reps from large companies, including Amtrak, QVC and Wawa
  • Pitch a demo for feedback from investors including Comcast Ventures, New Spring Capital and Robin Hood Ventures

(Important note: These curated meetings require application. You must register for Introduced by April 25 to apply.)

The full-day event costs $100 ($125 after April 25), with discounts for bulk tickets and sponsor of scholarship tickets. If you can’t afford the $100, you can request a scholarship ticket on the RSVP page.
