Over the past two years, Philadelphia has witnessed a rise in the number of tech start-ups and co-working spaces. But without proper support, many entrepreneurs fail to see their ideas and businesses flourish.
Sean Sullivan, a Democratic candidate for State Representative in the 175th district, knows that access to resources is essential for helping entrepreneurs in the tech community thrive.
At a recent town hall-style meeting at Impact Hub, Sullivan discussed plans for legislation he would introduce that will help support entrepreneurs and small businesses.
“I’ve been talking to people in the tech community these last few weeks,” Sullivan said, “and a town hall meeting just made sense. I want to listen to these people, hear what their concerns and issues are. There’s so much entrepreneurial activity going on here that it just seemed like the logical place to do it.”
