Our workforce is highly educated and boldly entrepreneurial. People of all backgrounds — and from every part of the world — are drawn to our welcoming atmosphere to pursue their career and life ambitions. All of this adds up to an incredibly innovative and motivated population in Greater Philadelphia.
