The IMPACT 2013 Venture Summit presented by The Greater Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT) will take place October 22-23 at The Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia. Fox Rothschild will serve as host of the Venture Summit, now in its 20th year.

According to Fox Rothschild Partner and Conference Host Michael Harrington, the Venture Summit has become much more than a show and tell, and is now an active marketplace for exchanging ideas, action and investment proposals. More importantly, according Harrington, the quality of presenting companies and number and geographic distribution of investors attending reflects the growing maturity of the Philadelphia tech and life sciences venture communities.

Fifty companies will be presenting this year, including 16 early stage companies, 18 technology companies and 16 healthcare companies, six of them in the healthcare information technology space.

PACT’s “200 for $200” Entrepreneur Program, offering qualified entrepreneurs the opportunity to register for just $200, returns this year and is still available, Harrington says.
