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.
