Technical.ly has recently published its inaugural State of the Philadelphia Tech Economy Report, marking a new era for the company after years of producing annual print magazines tied to big event series. This report, supported by various 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, aims to provide data and analysis on Philadelphia’s tech economy at a national level.
The report can be downloaded for free with the requirement of sharing your name, email, and job title. Inside the report, there will be examples of Technical.ly’s journalism, such as their Thriving series and profiles of individuals who best exemplify the region through their RealLISTs. The report is expected to become a capstone to Technical.ly’s work each year and a valuable resource for those interested in understanding the impact of technology on Philadelphia’s economy.
It is important to note that the terminology used in the report is intentional and includes phrases like community, ecosystem, economy, technology, startups, and innovation with subtle differences in meaning. However, each phrase focuses on different aspects of emerging inventions like software that drive research businesses and workforce growth in technology-related industries.
