PACT Names Sweft as Best in Show at Phorum 2021

Since 2012, the Phorum Demo Pit has featured close to 100 companies representing the best-emerging technologies to power digital transformation in the enterprise


Philadelphia, PA, April 22, 2021 – PACT, the Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies, today

announced Sweft as Best in Show at Phorum 2021. The Phorum Demo Pit was created to allow startups to connect with C-level enterprise decision-makers attending Phorum. Since the inaugural event, past winners have gone on to raise more than $65M in capital, and one third of the honorees have successfully completed exits to strategic acquirers.

“The Sweft team brings deep domain expertise and truly understands the challenge that eCommerce businesses face in connecting their data to create content,” commented Sean Dowling, Partner at Osage Venture Partners and Demo Pit selection committee member. “Julie provided a terrific presentation that summarized the product and value proposition in a clear and compelling way.”

Sweft helps retailers of all sizes quickly and profitably scale their online businesses by automating processes, connecting teams and reducing reliance on manual entry Excel spreadsheets. Retailers struggle to efficiently and accurately create the digital assets required to populate product detail pages (PDP) to sell online reducing their growth, profitability and competitive position. Sweft is an end-to-end SaaS solution with seven modules that organizes and automates the workflow management of digital asset creation. Sweft’s clear dashboard, priority alerts and 360-degree view of the product provide both visibility and accountability of tasks across a retailer’s teams, including buying, sample management, creative, marketing, copywriting and web production to allow them to work together smarter to launch new products faster from anywhere.
