New leadership has been recruited to lead the mission and growth of the Entrepreneurs' Forum of Greater Philadelphia (EFGP).

The Philadelphia100Ⓡ is the hallmark for the recognition and celebration of the fastest growing companies in the Philadelphia region. The Entrepreneurs’ Forum of Greater Philadelphia (EFGP) is the membership based organization where Philadelphia100Ⓡ CEO winners and other growth-oriented leaders meet for meaningful connections, peer learning, and new opportunities.

Joseph O'Donnell, the outgoing EFGP President, would like to welcome David Rose, President of Brio Solutions, and Emily V. Biscardi, CEO of Xelerate, LLC, as the incoming Co-Presidents. “We are excited about the new direction of EFGP. Philadelphia is one of the most vibrant and underserved entrepreneurial communities in the country. EFGP will be at the epicenter of this relevant community.”

As a result of a strategic planning process completed in 2016, EFGP realigned the organization's mission, vision, priorities, and objectives to focus specifically on CEOs of growth oriented companies.

"EFGP is uniquely positioned to build on its 30 year history and its Philadelphia100Ⓡ brand to position itself as the leading organization that supports CEOs of growth oriented companies and promotes growing business in the Philadelphia region", says David Rose.

"As leaders of growing businesses and recent graduates of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business program, David and I are uniquely positioned to lead EFGP during this pivotal time in the organization's history", says Emily V. Biscardi.
