Philly EnterpriseTech Highlights 2/19 to 2/21: Another SAP reorg; Comcast said to seek Vudu

The 27th Annual PACT Enterprise Awards are scheduled for May 12

Tom Paine

Tracking new and emerging tech companies in and around Philly has become more interesting and challenging in recent years as the startup ecosystem has blossomed. It’s deeper and more diverse than I can recall. The scene has mushroomed in the past two or three years, though much of the foundation was laid before then. The Philly healthcare sector has provided a particular boost, in terms of both new medicines and information technology.

The PACT Enterprise Awards has a good track record for spotting the best in midstream as they grow.

Last year’s nominees are shown here.
