With a rate of only 0.22 percent of new entrepreneurs, the region needs to find ways to encourage entrepreneurs to pursue their startup aspirations. TiE Philadelphia and PACT have organized a pitch event to help local entrepreneurs find investors and raise additional capital. This will be the second pitch event hosted by the two groups this year, as they continue providing a platform for budding local entrepreneurs.
  TiE is a not-for-profit organization focused on fostering entrepreneurship across generations. PACT provides members with content and connections to capital, coaching and customers to accelerate growth.
