The personalized insider newsletter for all things startup in Philadelphia.
Join the Phorum Community
Purposely designed for CIOs, CTOs and other business and technology executives, Phorum is the essential enterprise technology conference series focused on digital disruption at the boundary where “this will happen” becomes “this is who’s doing it now” — and “this is how and why you should not fall behind.”
Phorum 2020: Becoming a Digital Disruptor In a Changing World explores three key themes: Connectivity, Privacy and Ethical Data. All Series Programs feature a variety of lightning talks, panel discussions, keynote addresses and pitches from the Demo Pit finalists.
Phorum Philly 2020 stands an ongoing series with three segments: Phorum On-Demand, the Phorum Summer Series and the Phorum Keynote Series.
Did you miss any of the 2020 episodes or need a recap? Follow the links in the buttons below. Or log into the Phorum app on your phone or in your desktop browser. 
We’re giving away 250 hard copies of our keynote speaker Tony Saldanha’s book, Why Digital Transformations Fail: The Surprising Disciplines of How to Take Off and Stay Ahead
