From the Innovation & Job News section of Flying Kite media:

Even when it’s not Philly Tech Week, the region has an ever-growing schedule of hackathons and startup events. Despite the crowded landscape, Philly Tech Breakfast has already racked up over 200 members — including local notables from Philly Startup Leaders, Technically Philly and Drexel’s ExCITe Center — and they haven’t even held their first meetup yet.

The group will meet every third Thursday in Mitchell Auditorium at Drexel’s Bossone Research Enterprise Center. The morning will feature three-to-six presentations from local tech innovators. According to Enterprise Law Associates‘ Gary Smith, a founding sponsor, Tech Breakfast is “technology agnostic,” meaning that folks working on any tech-driven enterprise — be it a videogame platform or a medical diagnostic device — are welcome to participate.
