Yorn, the real-time feedback startup, is saying goodbye to its West Conshohocken office and opening up shop in Center City, according to an announcement made yesterday at Yorn’s new office Open House.

That’ll be the second Conshohocken-based company to move to Philly in the last three months (the first one being First Round Capital). The announcement was coupled with one from Councilman Bill Green about a proposed bill that aims to stimulate startup-growth in the city by easing the tax burden on software companies. Green will introduce the bill in City Council Thursday, and we’ll get you more details then.

Through a spokesman, Yorn CEO Rick Rasansky said that Green’s legislation played a role in the relocation, as well as Philly’s talent pool.

Yorn is moving its 12 employees into Center City West, north of Fitler Square, at 24th and Sansom Streets. It will neighbor Ticketleap, which recently moved into an office at 24th and Walnut Streets.
