Our Values

Collaboration

We care about progress, not credit. PSL is committed to working collaboratively with other organizations in our community, and we will always prioritize results over recognition.

 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We believe that every Philadelphian should have the opportunity to participate in our city’s growing startup ecosystem, and will proactively invest to create such opportunities. Our events, programming, and content will be designed and executed inclusively, and those involved will be representative of the city in which we live.

Transparency

Our community has a right to know who leads PSL, how we are governed, and how to provide feedback that can shape our decisions. We will be transparent, accessible, and receptive to feedback.

Focus

While there are countless ways to give back and create value in our city, we will focus our resources on one: The PSL mission. Our skills make us uniquely positioned to create value in this area, and that focus will increase our chances of success.
