Once a year, brings together entrepreneurs, HR leaders and corporate innovation executives for a day focused on building better companies.

Previously, this was done IRL at our Introduced by conference, which is one of Philly Tech Week presented by Comcast’s cornerstone events. With the emergence of COVID-19, we’ve all had to reimagine what networking, idea exchange and the business experience itself looks like.

To help keep our community connected during this trying time, we will be hosting a series of virtual events as part of an extended celebration of the 10th annual Philly Tech Week — starting next month with Introduced|Virtual.

Born from a reimagined 10th annual Philly Tech Week happening this September, Introduced|Virtual is a one-day immersive online conference introducing you to the ideas, people and opportunities that build better companies, even in the face of adversity.

Aligned with the themes of our in-person event, Introduced|Virtual adds a layer of timeliness with specialized talks on how to survive and thrive through uncertainty.
