It’s about perception.
Sensing that the perception of Philadelphia’s startup community in the minds of entrepreneurs hasn’t grown with the community itself, Duck Duck Go founder and Hacker Angel Gabe Weinberg launched this week a very small, very simple stake in the ground.
FoundedinPhilly.com is nothing but a few logos and a block of text, linking to some choice businesses and organizations that make up the community:

We have hackers. We have hackathons. We have real hackathons. We have mailing lists. We have super angels. We have hacker angels. We have open angel forums. We have VCs of all kinds. But enough about money. We have big events. We have cool events. We have lots of events. Hey, all you can handle bro’. We have multiple accelerators. We have co-working space. We have startup news. We have traction. We have exits. So join us already…

“I think most people outside Philly think the idea of a Philly Web startup scene is a joke,” Weinberg tells Technically Philly. “Inside Philly, I hear a lot about missing pieces, but from where I sit, we have the puzzle solved at this point.”
So he tossed online the simplest, most direct message to others, conveying that Philadelphia has all the parts of a foundation for one of the great entrepreneurship environments.
“If anything, we need more ambitious startup founders,” Weinberg says.
