We’re still excited by the numbers coming back from Philly Tech Week 2012: more than 10,000 attendees at 88 events across 8 days.

One of those events, hosted by Technically Philly, was the startup demo presentation event Switch Philly. Watch a recap of Switch below or in full-resolution at Vidder. Peep photos of the event on Facebook here.

Judged by Mayor Michael Nutter, First Round Capital Managing Director Josh Kopelman and Robin Hood Ventures Executive Director Ellen Weber, the event gave five promising startups the chance to pitch to a packed audience at the University of the Arts’ Gershman Hall.

SnipSnap, an iOS application to digitize coupons, won an extensive prize pack.

Be on the lookout for more Philly Tech Week videos coming soon.
