A big vision for tech
equity in Philadelphia

We know that access to careers in tech and innovation provide a viable pathway to sustainable wage careers and wealth creation. 1Philadelphia is a coalition of stakeholders working together to make our city a model of equitable tech and innovation, bringing together public and private partners to strengthen Philadelphia's workforce and build the next generation of innovators.

The urgent need for collective action

As a convener of the local tech community, we build critical partnerships between existing organizations and programs working to improve outcomes for underrepresented people. By focusing on multiplier initiatives that maximize impact we:

  • Raise awareness with Philadelphia residents about opportunities in tech and innovation through direct marketing, outreach, events and initiatives
  • Facilitate and support the launch of new programs and initiatives through grantmaking and operational support
  • Provide actionable data that will help drive change and inform state and local policies that are supportive of equitable innovation.

Areas of Impact

We can radically transform the landscape of opportunity in our city by focusing on three areas of impact: Community Cultivation, Talent Development, and Access & Upskilling.


Our mission is to strengthen collaboration among Philly's existing and emerging tech equity organizations.


Tech requires talent.
We will nurture our homegrown talent while attracting the best & brightest to Philadelphia.

Access &

We provide an accessible entry point and training ground for any Philadelphian who wants a career in tech.

Help us change the future of Philly.

At the heart of 1Philadelphia is a community of engaged stakeholders willing to take action for the betterment of our city. Speak to one of our team members to learn how you can invest in real outcomes that can change the trajectory of Philly.
