BFTP + PeopleLinx = Stronger Philadelphia Economy
Last week, Ben Franklin Technology Partners (BFTP), announced it is investing $675,000 in six Philadelphia-area tech companies. If you are not familiar with BFTP, they are a Pennsylvania state technology fund whose mission is to invest in early stage companies to create and keep jobs in the region.
PeopleLinx is proud to be one of the six companies chosen in this round so follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter to keep an eye out new job postings related to their investment – hint: they will be in Product Development and Sales.
Providing commentary on the partnership I tracked down our CEO, Nathan Egan:
“We have been working with Ben Franklin Technology Partners for over a year now and while their cash investment is important, we want everyone to know BFTP has given us much more than just capital. They have been a true partner and a diligent advisor from the very beginning – helping us to evolve our business plan, shape our management team, and ultimately set the foundation to grow our company. With that in mind it is a honor to help them create
jobs in the Philadelphia region.”
