IMPACT Venture Summit Mid-Atlantic 2012 this week (Nov 7th & 8th)

Tom Paine

Philly PACT's IMPACT Venture Summit Mid-Atlantic 2012 is set to take place on this Wednesday and Thursday (the 7th & 8th), mostly at the Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia. Since I wrote about it in September, the full agenda and roster of presenters has been fleshed out. The featured presenting companies, 46 by my rough count in Healthcare, Technology, Clean Tech and Early Stage are listed here. Keynoter Steve Case, Ed Rendell, QlikTech CEO Lars Bjork, Heartland Payments Chairman & CEO Robert Carr, iPipeline CEO Tim Wallace, Genacast Ventures Managing Partner Gil Beyda, and Philly Startup Leaders President and appRenaissance CEO Bob Moul are among those who will appear.

A key objective for this year was to make it less of an intramural event among Philly investors and attract more out of town VCs. It is an important event for showing off the Philly startup scene to other parts of the country.
