PACT Announces Finalists for 2021 Enterprise Awards


Finalists unveiled for nine competitive awards recognizing the achievements of the region’s technology and healthcare leaders and companies

Philadelphia, PA., February 5, 2021 – Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT) announced today in a special 10-minute video presentation the 27 finalists competing for one of the nine prestigious awards at the 2021 Enterprise Awards, the region’s most competitive and admired business awards.  The video announcement can be viewed on the event’s website.

After a pivot in 2020 to a virtual Enterprise Awards broadcast, this year’s celebration of the vitality of the region is tentatively scheduled as an outdoor, socially distanced event on June 29, 2021 at The Mann Center. Confirmation of the in-person format is pending information on the expected evolution of state, local, and federal guidelines for gathering safely.

“We are so proud to provide the platform that celebrates our local investors, entrepreneurs and businesses who are leading transformations worldwide in their respective fields,” said Dianne Strunk, Vice President at PACT.  “The judges selected the 27 finalists from a crowded field and it’s my honor to share the results with the region today.”
