The report can be downloaded for free by sharing your name, email, and job title. The report includes data analysis and independent assessment of Philadelphia’s tech economy at a national level. It also features examples of Technical.ly’s journalism, such as their Thriving series and profiles of individuals who embody the region through their RealLISTs.
It’s important to note that Technical.ly uses terminology such as technology, startups, and innovation interchangeably with phrases like community, ecosystem, and economy in the report. However, each phrase has a subtle difference in meaning. The report focuses on the economic impact of research, businesses and workforce in emerging inventions like software within the region’s tech economy.
Overall, Technical.ly’s State of the Philadelphia Tech Economy Report is expected to become an essential resource for stakeholders in the region’s tech community looking to gain insights into the industry’s current state and future prospects.
