PACT Adds Over 100 New Members in 2017

Accumulating three programs focused on Capital, Customers, and Coaching

Philadelphia, PA, July 18, 2017 – The Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT) ends its fiscal year with a burst of members. Approximately 105 new companies joined the organization in addition to hundreds of renewals. Back in the fall, PACT launched a refreshed brand, laser focused on early- and growth-stage companies in the Greater Philadelphia region along with complimentary drivers of innovation and entrepreneurship.

By placing members at the forefront, the brand showcases growing innovation in Philadelphia’s technology and healthcare sectors. PACT membership represents a plethora of organizations ranging from small startups to large enterprises. Historically, PACT’s membership consisted of mostly professional advisors, many of which continue to be involved today and fund the organization. This year, more enterprises, investors and entrepreneurs join the ranks of many others who have taken part for decades.

“PACT is at an inflection point in its own development. With the change of time and updates to technology, our sights are set high on gaining a strong stance in the emerging-growth community. Access to capital, connections to customers, and executive coaching are three core elements of PACT’s expanded service offerings,” commented Dean Miller, President and CEO of PACT.

The organization continues to produce top quality events that connect the entrepreneurial and capital ecosystems.  As a result of a strategic planning effort, PACT increasingly looks to provide needed services to its entrepreneurial constituents that benefit the entire ecosystem.

In addition to its year-old Mentor Connect program, PACT recently established two additional programs to further encompass its work: Customer Connect and Capital Connect. Via pitch sessions post the Technology Executive Roundtables, Customer Connect matches entrepreneurs to an enterprise seeking customers. Capital Connect represents the mission of the Annual PACT Capital Conference and Lion’s Den initiative. During the conference, entrepreneurs seeking capital have the chance to pitch directly to investors for funding.

PACT’s new brand reflects its updated vision to be the “go-to” resource for technology and healthcare companies throughout the Delaware Valley. Its robust membership marks a turning point for growth in the seven-year-old organization, stemming from over 20 years of connecting companies, capital, and community.
