Real Food Works

Philadelphia today is buzzing with start-up and early-stage business development. To support this burgeoning sector, PIDC joined forces with the City of Philadelphia to announce a series of initiatives known as StartupPHL. PIDC made a $3 million investment that was matched by First Round Capital, one of the nation’s leading early stage investors based here in Philadelphia, to create the $6 million dollar StartupPHL Seed Fund, designed to address the shortage of early stage investment capital available to Philadelphia’s expanding technology community. In 2013, we announced the first investment of $200,000 in Real Food Works an e-commerce company that delivers fresh, all-natural meals from a network of local restaurants.
