RealLIST Startups: Meet the 2023 Class of Most Promising Philly Tech Companies

In an industry that brings us creativity, life-altering inventions and artificial intelligence-driven decision making, that’s probably something that could be said every January. But if you found your way as an early-stage founder through the darkness of the pandemic, you were faced with new problems in 2022. It was a hell of a year for many tech companies, with fluctuating valuations, venture capital trends riding in waves and sweeps of layoffs. But a lot of good, smart technology was also created.

And it’s time to celebrate that. Every January, sets out to make a list honoring the most promising tech startups that we’ve seen do big things recently. Our RealLIST Startups names companies based in the Philadelphia region that have found their footing, struck the right chord and are poised for impactful growth.

This year, we saw some strong healthcare companies take the top few spots, as the pandemic disrupted much of how health systems operate. We also noted some startups from repeat founders with proven track records who have seen quick success since they launched these newer ventures. A few companies in growing markets like AI and business operations also made the cut.
