What if everyone took the time to share one Philly success story?

During last night’s Enterprise Awards, that was the main prompt from Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT) CEO Dean Miller, who emceed the 24th edition of the ceremony last night at the Pennsylvania Convention Center before a crowd of 900. Miller listed, in his opening speech, Philly tech successes like that of Sidecar (which just raised $11 million) and the up and coming LIA Diagnostics as signs of growth in the ecosystem.

Though this year the ceremony skewed a bit towards large, B2B tech companies in the suburbs, smaller companies from the Center City/University City corridor like ROAR for Good and Blackfynn also landed trophies.

The evening was capped by a tribute to investor Richard Vague of Gabriel Investments, who received the Legend Award for Lifetime Achievement. In his speech, the famed investor praised the tech growth the city has been experiencing of late.

Here is the complete list of winners:

    “Though this year the ceremony skewed a bit towards large, B2B tech companies in the suburbs…”
    Can we stop drawing a line between the city and the suburbs? That perspective inhibits our ability to grow. Philly Tech is a region whose businesses, talent, and capital is spread throughout an ecosystem that shouldn’t care about the county in which you operate (or live).
