CXO Panel Happy Hour

Philadelphia, PA

Philadelphia Market

Philadelphia serves as a major economic engine for the Northeast U.S. with strengths spanning education, biopharmaceuticals, financial services, tourism, and advanced manufacturing. Major Fortune 500 companies headquartered in Philly include Comcast, Aramark, and Five Below. The city's cluster of elite universities like UPenn and Drexel supplies a pipeline of talent, research, and entrepreneurship. Executives are drawn to Philadelphia's central East Coast location providing easy market access, as well as its vibrant food scene and extensive cultural attractions from museums to major sports teams. Ongoing investments in public transit and development of dynamic neighborhoods make the city attractive for young professionals. Tax incentives create a business-friendly climate while collaborative efforts between government, academia, and industry help spur innovation and job growth. Salaries are competitive with major metros but cost of living is more affordable than nearby NYC or DC. With its dynamic economy, thriving innovation ecosystem, and enviable quality of life, Philadelphia offers big-city amenities and opportunities but with greater approachability and value.
