“Our value add is our diversity,” said Mogulette founder Brigitte Daniel in the talent video. “We are a minority-majority city. Every neighborhood, every person, every ethnicity, every experience, every journey adds to the value that we have as a city. … That’s what’s gonna make Amazon know they chose the right place to build their new global future.”
In the livability video, released today, familiar faces such as PiperWai cofounder Jess Edelstein, Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia’s Randy LoBasso and Figure 8 Thinking principal Natalie Nixon pop up to share what they think is great about Philly.
