HOW CAN WE HELP?

Interview: Philadelphia Business Journal Friday, 14 January, 2011

The Philadelphia Business Journal sent out a survey to the local technology community with one question: What is the single best thing about Philadelphia’s startup climate? The single worst thing?

Along with Lucinda Holt from ClickEquations and Farid Naib from DocDep, The Philadelphia Business Journal published Patricia Tawadros's response.

"The sense of true community. We’re in a growth phase as a tech industry, and it’s inspiring to see the amazing ventures that have been launched. And, Philly Startup Leaders has fostered a robust tech ecosystem. Members share their knowledge, make introductions and offer moral support; no one expects anything in return, but the cheering is audible when a fellow entrepreneur succeeds. Investors have embraced our community and respond with educational opportunities, mentoring programs and funding. The single worst thing: Exposure. Philly Startup Leaders is working to eliminate this, and as its new director of marketing and public relations, I’m excited to be launching my startup in here today."
