If you had $25,000, how would you fight brain drain in Philadelphia?
Now’s your chance to put that idea into action. The city is looking to fund projects that will connect students with the local startup scene as part of its second round of Startup PHL grants. It’ll accept other types of projects, according to a release, but will have an eye toward those that aim to keep students in the city by exposing them to the tech scene.
Apply here by Dec. 13.
The city will choose four to eight projects and award them grants of under $25,000. It’ll come from $500,000 that was dedicated to the Startup PHL “Call for Ideas” program.-30-
