A Town Hall meeting and brainstorming with Councilmen Bill Green and David Oh.

Come out to City Hall to have an open forum discussion with members of City Council to hear ideas about the future of technology and entrepreneurship in Philadelphia and have the opportunity to give your input to help shape policy in the City.

Councilman – At – Large Bill Green will share his ideas about Open Government, citizen engagement, and supporting entrepreneurship (including through events like the recent “PhillySEED,” which he co-hosted).

Councilman – At – Large David Oh will share his ideas about creating “Innovation Clusters” in the city to encourage entrepreneurs to start and keep their businesses in Philadelphia along with building greater access to collaborating with international companies.

After the brief conversation between the Councilmen about their ideas, we will turn it over to audience participation where they give real-time feedback on what would work best from their point of view to make this a reality.
