A Tradition Of Excellence
Since its founding sixteen years ago, Early Stage East® (ESE) has been known to deliver the best, most forward thinking venture programs in the industry. When ESE hosted its first event in 1998, the internet was emerging as a force, GOOGLE was just beginning, Facebook did not exist, Blackberry was coming into vogue, Social Media was a term not to be used for another 8 years and the game changing IPhone and IPAD were a decade away.
Sixteen years later, over 800 companies have participated in Early Stage East events where over $1 billion has been invested in those entities. We have hosted over 40 events around the East Coast and have become known as a regular “must attend” event.
The Courtyard Marriott Downtown – “Not Your Typical Courtyard”
Club Pitch 2013 will take place at the Philadelphia Courtyard Marriott in Downtown Philadelphia. In case you have visions of a typical, boring, run-of-the-mill conference center, think again. This downtown Philadelphia hotel is located among some of the most recognizable landmarks in the country, like the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and the Reading Terminal Market. Listed on the prestigious National Register of Historic Places, the Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown offers incomparable luxury and convenience. Enjoy the charm, character and grandeur embodied in the many distinctive architectural elements of this Philadelphia hotel, a landmark and Crown Jewel of the Courtyard Brand. The view from our hotel near downtown Philadelphia is simply breathtaking, giving you an aura of many renowned European cities. Indulge yourself with the best seats in the house while you attend Club Pitch and network with colleagues.
