Drexel’s entrepreneurship school to host TechGirlz summer camp [Links]

"Faculty and staff from the Close School of Entrepreneurship, as well as notable Philadelphia area entrepreneurs from Chariot Solutions, AboutOne, RJ Metrics, Slice Communications and others, will guide the girls by providing support and mentorship."

TechGirlz Partners with Drexel University’s Charles D. Close School of Entrepreneurship to Host Third Annual Entrepreneur Camp [press release] “The weeklong day camp, which will be housed in the Close School’s Baiada Institute for Entrepreneurship, will host 20 girls, ages 11 to 15, who will work together to develop ideas and present a prototype and business plan. Faculty and staff from the Close School of Entrepreneurship, as well as notable Philadelphia area entrepreneurs from Chariot Solutions, AboutOne, RJ Metrics, Slice Communications and others, will guide the girls by providing support and mentorship. The camp is designed to address the fact that women, according to the Kauffman Foundation, lead only 3 percent of all tech startups.”

Innovative media to inspire communities and change lives [Philadelphia Daily News] “TOM HICKEY, 34, of Old City, is CEO and a partner in the creative startup Engagement Studios. Hickey was a deputy press secretary for former Gov. Ed Rendell in 2000-03. He formed the company in November to reinvent the way people work and interact with communities by building engagement campaigns through integrated strategy, media, design and technology.”

How open data is being used to hack climate change [The Guardian] “Open data campaigners are hoping for an announcement from the Environment Agency in the coming weeks about opening its core flood data. But waiting for governments to open their data troves is not the only way to get your hands on it. In Philadelphia, in the US state of Pennsylvania, a group of ‘civic hackers’ going under the name Code for Philly have decided to take the collection of climate data into their own hands.”
