Philly Startup Leaders began in 2007 as a handful of entrepreneurs meeting to trade stories. As PSL grew to over 150 members, we saw an opportunity to turn our small group – itself a startup – into something more ambititous: a force for growth in our members’ lives and our members’ communities.
PSL is an all volunteer, grassroots organization, and we know that startup entrepreneurs need each other.
