Philadelphia Entrepreneurs Took Home Almost $1 Million at IMPACT 2016

PHILADELPHIA – December 1, 2016 – Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT) announced the results of the IMPACT 2016 Capital Conference. After a day and a half of keynotes, panels and company pitches, over 1,000 attendees walked away with key insights, new connections and (for some) investment dollars. This year’s Lion’s Den was a home run.  Three companies were chosen from a pool of 45 companies to enter the Lion’s Den, QuantaVerse, Fischer Block and Double Helix, to pitch their innovations live in front of the IMPACT audience to five highly successful entrepreneurs. Each of the companies showed that they were up to the task with each receiving investment offers from the Lions of at least $300,000 and totaling just under $1 million in the aggregate.

“We are extremely proud of this year’s IMPACT Capital Conference and thankful for the investors of the Lion’s Den – Michael Wells, Robert Corrato, Sashi Reddi, Tom Gravina, and Walter Buckley. The time and dedication they extended to our closing session took our conference to new heights and showcased the true meaning of IMPACT,” expressed Sean Denham, IMPACT 2016 chairman and Philadelphia office managing partner at Grant Thornton, and Dave Maturo, IMPACT 2016 vice chairman and Grant Thornton’s director of business development.
