Philadelphia, PA – The Inquirer's 2018 Stellar StartUps winners were chosen from nearly 100 contenders. Winners in nine categories were announced Thursday, September 13 at a gala at South Bowl in Philadelphia. They were selected by a panel of judges with an expertise in entrepreneurship and start-ups, an increasingly important part of the region's economy and driven by a range of founders, including students, millennials, and those who left the corporate world by choice or downsizing and are now pursuing a second act. The contest is a months-long effort to spotlight the inventiveness and doggedness of the region's start-up leaders.
