From famous works of art to industry-changing innovations to successful meetings, conventions and dynamic businesses of all sizes, some of the world’s greatest minds have chosen to make it in Philadelphia. We are, after all, America’s original startup city. And our legacy of creativity carries right through to today’s generation of makers.
“The spirit of innovation in our modern renaissance city is a major reason why people want to do business here, travel here, work here and live here,” former Philadelphia Mayor Michael A. Nutter said. “Throughout its history, Philadelphia has been a city of makers and doers; with artists, chefs, convention planners, engineers, scientists, technologists and manufacturers all making and innovating right here.”#MakeItPHL
