Facing two major leadership changes in less than one year, Philly Startup Leaders is looking for a new path.
This morning, PSL Co-founder and Chair Chris Cera published a call to action to help shape the organization’s future, reminding its members and the community-at-large of the group’s history, manifesto and values. In September, the board asks interested parties to attend a fishbowl event intended to examine the organization itself.
It should be a healthy experience. The organization lost Founder Blake Jennelle to New York in January, and recently, Jameson Detweiler — who was voted to President after Jennelle’s departure — has taken his startup LaunchRock to the Bay Area.
As Cera puts it:
It’s time to put PSL in the “Fishbowl” and brainstorm about how our organization can continue to provide value to the Philadelphia startup ecosystem. What is our role? Who will provide the leadership necessary to keep PSL thriving? What fresh content will PSL deliver to the community? We need your input and insights.
A regular Startup Leaders event, the fishbowl has traditionally brought together a group to examine business problems that an entrepreneur is facing. Now, the board hopes it can bring answers to what’s next at PSL.-30-
