PCI and Pennovation Works Attend SXSW 2023

PCI and Pennovation Works attended SXSW Interactive in Austin, Texas this March with our partners at Amplify Philly. It was a great opportunity to share the innovation initiatives coming out of Penn and Philadelphia with a global audience.

Michael Poisel, MS, MBA, Executive Director of PCI Ventures, spoke on a panel for Amplify Philly’s “Philly Made: Entrepreneur Round Table” and shared about the startup world at PCIV.

Additionally, the Penn-Wharton Austin Alumni Club hosted a startup pitch session, which included two recent graduates from PCI’s I-Corps accelerator. Wharton student Noah Levi pitched Percussion, a medical device that utilizes novel non-invasive therapy to treat sinusitis, and IPD Graduate student Nika Koda pitched Blossom, a rehabilitation tool for stroke patients that reduces shame and promotes creativity.
