Technical.ly has announced the launch of their inaugural State of the Philadelphia Tech Economy Report, marking a new chapter in their coverage of the tech industry. The report, which will be published for each market they serve, is made possible with support from several organizations, including the City of Philadelphia Department of Commerce, Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern Pennsylvania, Morgan Lewis, the Penn Center for Innovation, and Silicon Valley Bank.
The report can be downloaded for free by sharing your name, email, and job title. Inside the report, readers will find data and analysis on Philadelphia’s tech economy at a national level. Additionally, examples of Technical.ly’s journalism will be included in the report, such as their Thriving series and RealLIST profiles.
It is important to note that the terminology used in the report is intentionally used semi-interchangeably with phrases like community, ecosystem, and economy. However, each phrase has a subtle difference in meaning. The report is directed at the region’s tech economy specifically and focuses on its economic impact on research businesses and workforce emerging inventions like software.
