We’re curating a tour of the coolest innovation spots in the city: Apply now

To kick off Philly Tech Week, we're hosting an Innovation Crawl. Makers, game designers, community managers: get at us.

Our annual outdoor Philly Tech Week kickoffs were a hit, but our poor event organizers just can't take another year where we have to postpone because of rain.

Philadelphia has led the country more times than a few. Ahem, 1776. And so, to kick off Philly Tech Week 2017 presented by Comcast, Technical.ly is showing folks exactly why the 215 leads. We’re curating a crawl with must-see stops to showcase what makes the city innovative.

If you’re wondering, what happened to Technical.ly’s traditional outdoor PTW kickoffs? Here’s your answer: After five straight years of rain outs, we learned to avoid Mother Nature’s wrath. We’re taking it indoors and opening up the exhibiting opportunity to the public. Huge shoutout to Squareknot CEO Jason Rappaport for passing his Startup Crawl vision to #PTW17 organizers.

First thing’s first, the PTW17 Innovation Crawl is scheduled for Friday, April 28, 5-10 p.m. Save the date.

Now, apply for your spot on the Innovation Crawl. The tour isn’t only for startup offices. All kinds of spaces are eligible. We’re also looking for locally built games and tech to show off during the crawl. It’s kind of like our traditional Arcade @ The Oval, but all across the city.

Tell us why you belong on the Innovation Crawl. Apply by Tuesday, Feb. 14.


Not sure if you’re a fit? Check out what we’re looking for below.

  • Coolest company culture? Prove it.

  • Launching soon? Show off your new project.
  • Great space to host? Offer your place as a themed stop and we’ll fill it up for you!
  • Cool things to show off in general? We’ll find the perfect crawl stop to place your organization.

All applicants will be notified of decisions by Tuesday, Feb. 28.
