‎Program Director at Philly Startup Leaders

If you have attended a Philadelphia tech or entrepreneurship event, chances are you've met Yuval Yarden. Yuval Yarden is dedicated to cultivating a strong identity for Philadelphia that supports startup growth and innovation. As the Program Director for Philly Startup Leaders (PSL), she connects entrepreneurs with resources, opportunities and programing that help them develop new relationships that support their company growth.

After working at several early stage technology startups such as Cloudmine and Zoomer, Yuval shifted her focus to supporting the broader development of the ecosystem. She has helped countless Philadelphia newcomers and seasoned natives find likeminded colleagues and opportunities to grow their ideas and business solutions within the Philadelphia startup community.

Philly Startup Leaders works with a variety of partners to support startup founders and their businesses. PSL's Bootcamp program inspires entrepreneurship with over 90 participants; at Entrepreneur Expo 60+ companies displayed their products to over 800 attendees. Last year, PSL launched Start. Stay. Grow., a program that works to engage hundreds of university students in Philadelphia's entrepreneurial community through lightning talks and mentor matching opportunities. In addition to their programing, PSL manages a list serve that connects thousands of local entrepreneurs to each other and to their community partners.

Yuval graduated from Temple University in 2013. In addition to her work with PSL, Yuval works in commercial real-estate at Jones Lang Lasalle supporting startups in finding office space. Yuval is a self proclaimed “pretty good doodler” and an over sharer of random yet useful facts she's picked up along the way.
