Are you the next Mark  Zuckerberg? Do you find yourself dreaming about starting your own app empire? Do you just want find out what the word “entrepreneur” really means?

Well, it’s a good thing Tech Start-Up Crawl‘s coming up.

Join us on Tuesday, November 6th, from 4pm-8pm, as we crawl around Philly checking out some of the coolest tech companies in the city and find out what it takes to work at a successful start-up.  At each crawl stop, start-up leaders and their employees will share their personal experiences and talk about what is like to work in the fast-paced, creative field of technology.


Into it? Here are some of the companies we’ll be visiting:


First Round Capital: They’ve invested in and financed some of the best start-ups around. Ever heard of StumbleUpon,, and LinkedIn? FRC has worked with them and many more. In this stop, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes tour of an internationally acclaimed venture capital firm (aka providing funding to technology companies) and a nice view of the financial part of starting a business.


DreamIt Ventures: Basically THE place to get your unique idea launched, DreamIt Ventures is behind success stories like SeatGeek and MindSnacks as well as over 80 companies, so yes, we’d say you’re in good hands.


Physically allergic to exercise? We know that feeling. You can still join us at the panel discussion afterward, where we’ll be hearing from Chuck Sacco of Mobile Monday Mid-Atlantic, Chris Stanchek from TicketLeap, Tracey Welson-Rossman from Chariot SolutionsTechGirlz and Philly Startup Leaders, and Chris Wink from Technically Philly. There, you’ll have a chance to network with some of the hottest start-up entrepreneurs in the greater Philadelphia region.
