It may have been the first Startup Weekend Philadelphia, but we’re already counting down the days to the next one!  From the passionate entrepreneurs to the innovative and lean startups pitched and launched, SW Philly was a huge hit.

By Sunday 16 teams presented their startups.  An excellent article in the digital edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer highlights some of the event’s star teams.  The event winner was GitHacking, a clever startup that platform that helps software developers who use GitHub.  Other memorable teams include MealTik, WishGenies, and LaunchRock.

You may recognize LaunchRock from an earlier post: In a Startup Weekend first a startup pitched Friday was written up in TechCrunch the following Tuesday.  It just goes to show the potential contained in one weekend.
