Connect with Comcast NBCUniversal During Philly Tech Week

We love Philly Tech Week. It’s a chance for people in the city’s tech community to step back from the day-to-day routine and learn from one another. It’s a time to see old friends and make new ones. It’s a time to learn about the latest innovations from startup founders, and educate ourselves about big trends coming down the pipeline.

If you’re attending Philly Tech Week this year, we’d love to connect with you. There are many opportunities to meet tech leaders from the company and spend time with the LIFT Labs team.

We will host events at LIFT Labs PHL inside the Comcast Technology Center, and attend many of the other key happenings across the city that week including Dev Day, Introduced by Technical.ly, the PSL Entrepreneur Expo — where we will be podcasting live — and the Signature Event, which will take place at the Comcast Technology Center.
