PHILADELPHIA’S BUSTLING TECHNOLOGY COMMUNITY UNVEILS 60-SECOND PITCH PROJECT WITH PHILLY IN FOCUS JUST IN TIME FOR PHILLY TECH WEEK
Philadelphia…April 18, 2013…As part of a continued effort to showcase the bustling activity of Philadelphia area technology entrepreneurs, the community today unveiled 40+ startup stories in the form of 60-second elevator pitches, now available on the Philly Startup Leaders channel on www.PhillyInFocus.com.
“We are proud to support the entrepreneurs in this region and offer an important platform for their storytelling,” said Bill Kettleson, Regional Vice President, Government & Regulatory Affairs at Comcast Cable.
Philly In Focus is a Comcast/NBCUniversal, local multimedia platform dedicated to supporting the people, businesses and organizations in Philadelphia. The more than 40 initial stories were captured by Philly In Focus, and the most engaged videos on the channel, based on views and social media activity, may appear on Xfinity On Demand.
“The idea behind the videos is to continue to build a warehouse of easy to access information about the Philadelphia entrepreneurial community that will inspire press coverage, and motivate other entrepreneurs, potential investors, and support organizations to build businesses right here in Philadelphia,” said Philly Startup Leaders President Bob Moul, CEO of Artisan, a growing mobile company founded and based in Old City.
A number of organizations will feature the videos, including Select Greater Philadelphia during an international innovation press tour of the region this week, the City of Philadelphia’s Startup PHL project, Philly Startup Leaders, Philly Founded and the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau, among others. A coordinated social media campaign will push the stories out over the next few weeks.
