In Philadelphia, which one will it be?

Technology | Sustainability | Food | The Arts

That's a great question, and it's also why I posted this.

Philadelphia has always been known as a city of firsts. The First Zoo, First Stock Exchange, First Skyscraper, First University, and the First Library. It's really amazing once you stop and think about how many successful concepts that our country (and other developing countries) thrive on, and that got their start in Philadelphia.

But as a city that's now over 300 years old, Philadelphia is constantly reinventing itself. The problem is that things change so fast these days that it's hard to know what our focus should be. The good news is that Philadelphia is strong in many prominent categories, so it gives us the opportunity to pick and choose which direction might work best.

Here are 4 areas of focus:
  1. Technology
  2. Sustainability
  3. Food
  4. The Arts 
I could spend a lot more time talking up these different sectors, but this article is a great way to read and learn more about what Philly's new booming industry will be.
