Who We Are

We’re a group of innovators who want to make Camden a better place for motivated students and entrepreneurs to thrive and succeed. Collectively we’re known as the Camden Innovation Team (Camden IT). And separately we’re professionals, founders, and advisors that are invested in the city and wants to see the it grow from within.

It’s our dream to see Camden transform into a vibrant city full of opportunities for startups, students, and residents. And just about any entrepreneur with an instagram account can tell you that dreams don’t come true unless you act on them. We plan to bring opportunities into Camden by providing resources and funding for startups to grow inside the city and incentives for startups on the outside to join.

On March 24th at 2:00PM, we the Camden IT team decided to create a Pitch Competition with a prize pool of $25,000 to help stir the Startup community in and around Camden. Our goal for this competition is to help several startups get off the ground and establish a headquarter in Camden, where they in turn can grow and provide internship, jobs, and opportunities in the near future.
