Remember that flurry of excitement earlier this year after Philly Startup Leaders co-founder Blake Jennelle helped stir up a conversation on why Philadelphia had to be among the five most emerging entrepreneurial markets in the country.
It might be important to note that while the region itself is working hard to develop a consensus on its direction, the destination of the Philadelphia startup is hardly accepted more universally.
As if we needed another reminder, VentureBeat wrote on a East Coast tour of technology communities: Washington D.C. to Boston, with a New York City in the middle, but not a stop in Philadelphia to be found — even if trains and the highways all take them our way. Now, Baltimore may take issue with all of this too, but even partners in locally-founded investment companies are talking about the67thward.
As VB’s DemoBeat wrote: “We’ll be back on the road over the next few months, to continue our search for more entrepreneurs intent on changing the world with their technologies.”
Maybe they’ll come our way then.
