The Philadelphia Inquirer is hosting its first tech and entrepreneurship event.
They’re calling it the Start Up City and it features many familiar faces, including Monetate CEO Lucinda Duncalfe, who will talk about scaling a company alongside La Colombe CEO Todd Carmichael, CHOP’s Patrick FitzGerald on the city’s eds-and-meds sector and Comcast’s Danielle Cohn on the city’s strengths and weaknesses as a business headquarters (this reporter will also be on that panel).
The event is on Tuesday, July 14 at the Kimmel Center from 1:30-6 p.m.
