About the PACT Capital Conference
Each year, the PACT Capital Conference connects the region’s best and brightest entrepreneurs to investors. But this program is something more. It will showcase mature companies from the Philadelphia region along with pitch sessions from international, university, and social impact entrepreneurs. It boils down to more capital opportunities for entrepreneurs and more potential investments for investors.

Before celebrating at the Gala Reception directly following, the conference will conclude with the fifth installment of the Lion’s Den, in which select companies will present to a panel of distinguished angel investors looking to write a check and power entrepreneurial ventures. Last year’s Lion’s Den resulted in more than $850K distributed in aggregate.

The PACT Capital Conference has a long tradition of uniting key players from the private equity, venture capital, and entrepreneurial communities. This day-and-a-half event offers both sponsors and attendees access to emerging companies from the Mid-Atlantic region, networking opportunities with the movers and shakers from the community, and educational panels and content sessions. As the oldest and most established venture conference in the Northeast, this conference draws more than 1,000 participants each year. It stands as the catalyst for billions of dollars in venture funding and entrepreneurial success. www.pactcapconf.com
