We’re interviewing City Hall’s startup pro on Slack tomorrow. Here’s how to join

Archna Sahay. August 24, 2016 Category: EventFeaturedPeopleShort
If you don’t know Archna Sahay, you’re about to.

Sahay has been the Department of Commerce’s director of entrepreneurial investment for just over a year and a half, and if you don’t know what that means, here’s how she explained her job to Philly last year:

“The City role gives me an opportunity to serve the citizens of Philadelphia and give back to a city that has given me so much,” she said. “With this role I have a larger platform to promote and secure resources for all the exciting and diverse entrepreneurial activities happening in Philadelphia.”

Speaking of our dear sister site, we’ll be taking over its public Slack to interview Sahay for our “leaders of color” series tomorrow — Thursday, Aug. 25 — from noon to 1 p.m.

We’ll be opening up the floor to folks in the Slack #impact channel, so this is your chance to ask Sahay some questions of your own about the city’s Startup PHL program, her path to leadership or her sick dance moves (as witnessed during’s Philly Tech Week closing party). If you don’t have a Slack account or aren’t already in the Slack, hit up the big orange button below.
