The furniture, TVs, whiteboards and beer are now in Seed Philly, so the warm bodies are beginning to follow.
The self-styled mission-driven startup accelerator in Center City will officially welcome its first partner company on March 1, says Seed Philly founder Brad Denenberg.
That first company, OneTwoSee, which creates TV companion programming for mobile devices, doesn’t have a long commute. Previously, OneTwoSee, which has already transitioned, was being housed at Green Village, the incubator for sustainably-focused startups that is nearly adjacent office space on the 19th floor of 1650 Arch Street.
“Green Village was a great fit for us as we were getting into the starting blocks,” said OneTwoSee CEO Chris Reynolds. “As our business continues to grow on a daily basis the infrastructure and platform that Seed Philly can provide is a better fit for the business.”
With 11 offices, a few of which are already secured, and a bullpen of programming space, Seed Philly expects to house flexibly 50 people, Denenberg said. The incubator is also rolling out its event programming, hosting last week another in its series of paid Microsoft development workshops.
