The eight startups in Philly Startup Leaders’ accelerator got together last week at Benjamin’s Desk for a kickoff event of the program’s fourth iteration.

The companies have already been making moves before joining the 12-week program. Here’s the lineup:

The accelerator’s 2016 cohort saw some success after completing the program, like ecommerce company Return Logic, which closed a $600,000 seed round or sponsored WiFi company GuestNet, which signed on big gym franchise in N.J. as a client.

Oh, we also have an update from PSL itself: in December, Lindsay Tsai — a Penn grad and former healthcare innovation consultant at Deloitte — joined the nonprofit in the role of program director. She’ll be tasked with running the accelerator.
