Some of the nation’s best colleges and universities are in Philly and its surrounding suburbs. However, the area has historically faced a thorny issue: How do we retain this talent and encourage students to stay in Philly and continue making an impact in the city that has helped them grow?

That’s what the Start. Stay. Grow. initiative aims to address.

On Wednesday, Oct. 21 at Wildbit’s office space, we’ll be organizing our annual Start. Stay. Grow. Summit to show off a bit of what Philly has to offer. Nearly 20 different organizations will be sharing 60-second pitches to talk about what they do, the resources or benefits they offer to the community and ways to get involved.

RSVP

While the event is geared towards students, the event is open to everyone! Aspiring entrepreneurs, enthusiastic community members and those who are just curious to learn are all encouraged to come out.
