Philadelphia: Smart City. Smart Choice.
"We chose Philadelphia for our corporate headquarters because
we have access to talented people, a wide variety of educational
institutions and it offers a wonderful quality of life for our employees
and their families. Philadelphia has a strong public transportation
system, great restaurants and an amazing art community."
- Brian L. Roberts, Chairman and CEO, Comcast Corporation
THE RESULTS ARE IN
Mayor Nutter challenged Philadelphia businesses to create videos explaining why Philadelphia is a Smart City and a Smart Choice for business. Every entry we received included thoughtful and creative responses, and the judging committee had a difficult choice to make. The three top winners shown here will receive a visit from the Mayor. Congratulations Viridity Energy, Urban Engineers, and United by Blue.
From the scale and size of our market, to the national and global access of our East Coast
location, to our highly educated and diverse labor pool, Philadelphia is at the center of
a dynamic and thriving region.

across a wide variety of sectors such as life sciences, healthcare, telecommunications, advanced
manufacturing, warehouse and transportation logistics, and education.
