About this Event

The picnic is back for our five year anniversary!

Join key members of the entrepreneurial community at the 2023 PHL Innovation Picnic for great food, drinks, games, and lots of networking. Taking place at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, the PHL Innovation Picnic connects the area’s tech scene, including entrepreneurs, investors, community builders, and enterprise leaders alike. The last three PHL Innovation Picnics collectively brought together 2,000 conveners and raised over $32,000 in proceeds for local youth-innovation nonprofits.

There are lots of ways to support the Picnic through volunteering, sponsorship opportunities, etc. See below for sponsorship opportunities!
