Christmas in July 2016: Startups



Slice Communications is hosting its third annual Christmas in July, a free brainstorm for local startups looking to increase their visibility on social media and gain press opportunities.

Submissions from startups in the Philadelphia area to attend the free, three-hour brainstorm session to help increase their visibility on social media and gain press opportunities remain open until July 15. Participating businesses will be invited to Slice headquarters at the Bourse building, located at 111 S. Independence Mall East, Suite #340 on Monday, July 25.

Slice’s team of public relations and social media professionals will select startups to maximize potential. After careful evaluation, Slice experts will select organizations based on the following criteria:

  • Headquartered in the Greater Philadelphia region, which includes Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Chester, and Delaware counties in PA; Burlington, Camden, and Salem counties in NJ; New Castle county in DE
  • At least (4) full-time employees or FTE equivalents
  • Privately held or non-profit
  • At least one holiday season experience
  • Existing social media channels
  • Website analytics in place
  • Willing and able to come to Old City, Philadelphia on Monday, July 25

It is easy for business professionals to lose track of time as the holiday season approaches. Celebrating Christmas in July encourages organizations to plan early for the holiday season, which leads to a more rewarding holiday profit.

Those interested must apply here no later than Wednesday, July 15 at 5 p.m. EST. Selected organizations will be notified by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, July 22. For more information, please email Tyler Cameron at
