Managing Partner Josh Kopelman writes in Business Insider about First Round Capital moving its headquarters from suburban West Conshohocken to University City in Philadelphia.
That’s why I’m done sitting on the sidelines. And so is First Round Capital. And I am super-excited to announce that First Round Capital is moving our headquarters from the suburbs of West Conshohocken into the city of Philadelphia. I’m trading my sterile suburban office park environment (and short commute) for proximity to Philadelphia’s entrepreneurs. We’ll be opening a 10,000 square foot facility in University City – right next to Penn’s campus. In addition to housing our Philadelphia team, the office will have space for startups – both for our portfolio companies (such as Uber’s Philly team, Curalate and Perceptual Networks) as well as other companies (like Technically Philly – who will be locating their offices there as well). It will have space to host educational and networking events. And it will have space for entrepreneurs to hang out and work.
