We’re still excited by the numbers coming back from Philly Tech Week 2012: more than 10,000 attendees at 88 events across 8 days.
Judged by Mayor Michael Nutter, First Round Capital Managing Director Josh Kopelman and Robin Hood Ventures Executive Director Ellen Weber, the event gave five promising startups the chance to pitch to a packed audience at the University of the Arts’ Gershman Hall.
Be on the lookout for more Philly Tech Week videos coming soon.
SnipSnap, an iOS application to digitize coupons, won out Switch Philly 3, the startup demo event, Wednesday night. An Android version of the app is coming, Mann has said.
Presented by founder Ted Mann, who won Mobile Monday to earn the spot, was eager to add a piece of news to his Switch presentation, having pitched his app publicly before. And he did. SnipSnap is now live in the App Store.

Judged by Mayor Michael Nutter, who mentioned his being out of his element, venture capitalist Josh Kopelman and RobinHood Ventures Executive Director Ellen Weber, the Philly Tech Week event featured more than 100 attendees at the Gershman Y watching five startup demos.

Switch Philly is all about showing off the great products being created by Philly companies every day. With that in mind, we’re excited to announce three of the five companies slated to demo during the Spring 2011 Switch Philly on April 26th at the Wharton School of Business during Philly Tech Week.
After the jump we preview the next three Switch presenters, including a company that makes Facebook more family friendly, another that will rock your next house party and a third that aims to make web video much more fun (and profitable).
The second Switch, to be held at Wharton during Philly Tech Week, is due for April 27, 2011.
We’ll unveil the five companies to demo soon, but looking at what the Fall 2010 kickoff looked like, you can already bet this should be a treat.
Tickets are $10, but the cost of seeing the future is included. REGISTER HERE
