The goal of this meet-up is networking and pitches so come prepared with a thirty second pitch and please, please, please no paper. We want to talk to as many of you as possible and in the our goal is to energize and assess the start-up arena in Philly (and everywhere we hold these things.)

The event is on June 19 at the Field House, 1150 Filbert St. from 6-10pm. We will have drink tickets for you so look for us at the event. If you want to tweet us, it’s @johnbiggs and @jordanrcrook. If you have specific questions, email me at

As is our wont, we like to hold these on neutral ground and we’d love to sit down with you to chat about what you’re working on during the day. The official office hours reservations are closed, but if you want to stop by and wait for an opening, feel free. We’re holding office hours at Caribou Cafe near the venue, also on June 19, beginning at 12 noon.
