Party with Venturef0rth.
The Callowhill coworking space, which until recently was close to shutting down, is throwing a blowout tomorrow at Underground Arts. We haven’t seen this type of party from the Philly tech scene yet — it seems to cater to a non-tech audience (it’s hosted by rapper Chill Moody, among others) but also features a whole slew of technologists as guest speakers, like Roar for Good cofounder Yasmine Mustafa and Milkcrate CEO Morgan Berman. Whose Your Landlord cofounder Ofo Ezeugwu, a DreamIt alum, is also co-hosting.
It’s not a fundraiser to keep the space open, said community manager Melissa Marsili, since Venturef0rth raised that money from an anonymous donor. Instead, she said, it’s a way to raise money for new programming. It’s also an interesting marketing play for the coworking space, which is bundling an event ticket and one month’s membership for $50.
Venturef0rth is is working with the folks at Bonfire, who run marketing for Underground Arts, to host the event. They’re getting the space at a discounted, charitable rate, said Bonfire’s Kevin Horn.-30-
