Ready for what’s next?
Join us tonight at 6 p.m. for the second ever Switch Philly (presented by InterDigital), where we’ll showcase five companies that we think are in line to be the next big thing.
There, the companies will each get seven minutes to show off what they’ve been working on. The event will demonstrate the great things happening in our backyard that we see everyday here at Technically Philly while giving us all the chance to say “I liked them before they were popular.”
Tickets for Switch close at noon, but you’ll be able to buy them at the door for $10 (cash only).
We’d like to thank InterDigital, Wharton School of BusinessGenacast VenturesMorgan Lewis and VC Deal Lawyer for their support of Switch.
After the jump take one last look at our demoing companies.
