Philly-based hardware and health IT companies: how about kicking off December by having a chat with investors?

The Philadelphia Industrial Development Corporation (PIDC) is teaming up with Ben Franklin Technology Partners to host one of those “Meet Ben” sessions on Thursday, Dec. 1 at PIDC’s Navy Yard HQ.


Yes, companies will have a chance to network and trade cards. But it’s actually a bit of a reverse pitch session, where reps from Ben Franklin — which, BTW, invested $3.1 million in 12 Philly-based companies during the first quarter of fiscal year 2017 — will share the full scope of what the firm’s investment package looks like and all the assistance that comes with it.

“We want you to be at the workshop and take advantage of the information and resources available through Ben Franklin to better position your company to compete in the global marketplace,” said PIDC Vice President Marla Hamilton in an email.
