Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT) announced the results of the PACT Capital Conference 2019. After a full day of keynotes, featured company pitches, pitch sessions, an exclusive showcase and panel sessions, close to 1,000 attendees walked away with key insights, new connections and (for some) large amounts of investment commitments. After a full day of pitching, three companies were chosen from more than 40 featured company presenters to enter PACT’s inaugural Lion’s Den. Triple Bristle, Simply Good Jars and TrekIT Health pitched their innovations once more live in front of the conference audience to five highly successful entrepreneurs. Simply Good Jars received $350K and Triple Bristle received $225K from multiple Lion Investor commitments.

“A little over a half million dollars in a little over an hour is not bad at all,” excitedly expressed Lion’s Den Moderator and NewSpring Capital General Partner, Marc Lederman, at the session’s conclusion. “We were thrilled to welcome David Adelman, Jonathan Brassington, Anthony Bucci, Katherine O’Neill and Richard Vague as our Lion Investors and we thank them for their outstanding commitments,” added Dean Miller, President & CEO of PACT.
