Celebrating PACT 5 Years Stronger

A Few Words from PACT Leaders

A warm welcome & a look to the future from the PACT Foundation Luncheon – Jonathan Brassington, CEO of LiquidHub and Chairman of the PACT Board of Directors


“PACT and its events provide wonderful connections. I have been involved for many years and started “four names ago”, when it was called Delaware Valley Venture Group. When the organization became PACT, it brought the region together. There are all types of companies and accelerators actively involved. The events help me meet new people outside of Biotech.

Furthermore, it is important for investors to come together and discuss problems, topics and issues facing the industry – there is a collegiately and PACT cultivates that.”

“Happy 5th Anniversary, PACT!  In just five years PACT has become an integral part of the emerging growth, information technology, clean technology, life sciences and healthcare industries in Greater Philadelphia by bringing them together into one community that provides a platform for the organizations within these industries and the capital needed to support them.  Looking to the future, PACT’s commitment to this community will continue to be essential to the success of these industries in the Greater Philadelphia region. “

  • Julia Rafferty, Partner ,Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young


“Duane Morris is pleased to have been a founding sponsor of PACT, and was an early supporter of Mid-Atlantic Capital Alliance and The Eastern Technology Council, the two organizations that were brought together to form PACT.  Since its inception, PACT has captured the greatest aspects of its predecessors to be “the” organization in the Greater Philadelphia region supporting emerging growth companies and their investors.  Although I joined the Board of Directors of PACT less than a year ago, I have been actively involved with the organization for many years and see my involvement with PACT as integral to the growth of my law practice.

One of the most rewarding aspects of my role as a legal advisor to entrepreneurs is connecting them with other “players” in the entrepreneurial community, such as capital sources, strategic partners and others who will play a key role in the growth of their businesses.  By far one of the best avenues that enables me to do this is through my involvement with PACT.  PACT captures the essence (on a grand scale!) of what it means to be a connector in this community, and I have no doubt that the organization will continue to build upon that guiding principle for years to come.”

  • Sandra G. Stoneman, Partner, Duane Morris LLP


“Over the past five years, PACT has solidified its stature as this region’s leading association dedicated to connecting entrepreneurs with the investors and professionals who can help them achieve their goals. PACT has been instrumental in making the region a dynamic market for growth and emerging companies. Since PACT’s inception, we have watched our clients and colleagues thrive and become some of the area’s most respected leaders and connectors. As we look to the future, PACT will continue to change the landscape of our region by supporting entrepreneurship and driving innovation by facilitating connections through its vast network.”
