Uber and Out ? - What Happens After Start Up?

Due to inclement weather, the CEO Access Network breakfast and YPC Networking event at Roy-Pitz Barrel House on Wednesday, March 21 is cancelled. Rescheduled dates for both events will be communicated to participants once confirmed.

Young professional entrepreneurs are the driving force behind current economic development in our region and around the world. The creative and information technology sectors are two of the fastest growing industries. Innovative ideas are often born and incubated in higher educational institutions. When graduates launch they have the choice to remain in the City where they studied or to leave. The Greater Philadelphia region is a higher ed. hotbed, and a brain drain. How does Philadelphia compare to other Smart Cities throughout the US and to Silicon Roundabout in London for example in keeping young, bright start-ups in town? How will Brexit and the new US government impact entrepreneurial ventures and affect global mobility and cybersecurity? Join the BABC Young Professionals Group for the annual seminar and networking event. Meet experts who will address the Internet of Things and how this topic is shaping our world, the global economy, and nearly our every breath.
