Philly Startup Leaders writes Love Letter to Philadelphia, Mayor Nutter

After highlighting the city's entrepreneurial community during his address to the Chamber of Commerce last week, Mayor Nutter followed up with a letter to Philly Startup Leaders, the wide-ranging volunteer group he cited by name in his speech.

And PSL has returned the favor, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, showing, in a city often criticized for being less than business friendly, quite a bit of love.

“Through my second term, my Commerce Department and I will stress the importance of making Philadelphia a more dynamic city for startups. I recognize the value of these companies–and of organizations like Philly Startup Leaders, which brings these entrepreneurs together–to Philadelphia’s success in the new economy,” wrote Nutter in the letter [PDF]. “The City is here to help.”

In response, beginning on the PSL listserv, a few active members got together to write a letter showing their love, in the style of the popular Visit Philly campaign, as seen above and posted on their blog.

The idea came from Cristina Greysman of SunGard and was designed by Patty Tawadros of Center City design firm Xercel.
