NorthPoint, the New York-based enterprise software company that specializes in the financial and digital sector, opened a Center City office last month in One Liberty.
To start, the office, which is the company’s third after Boston, will be a one-woman band. Debra Loggia (@debloggia) will be running the expansion with her sales and healthcare background. As she told Technically Philly recently on a breezy afternoon in University City earlier this month, she was most recently leading digital marketing at Thomas Jefferson Hospital, where she also had done her masters work in health policy.
That background may be one of her best assets for NorthPoint, which is widening its reach and the pharma, life sciences, hospital and other medical businesses that dot this region are in strong alignment.

It was the second time that Nutter has celebrated a new startup office in less than a month, cutting the ribbon at Artisan Mobile’s new Old City office in late June. It’s a sign of the times — and Nutter’s priorities — that he’s throwing his weight behind startups that are still early-stage, with a few dozen employees, instead of only applauding big name tech companies that have moved to the city, like Fiberlink, Bentley Systems and First Round Capital.
Mayor Michael Nutter celebrated Curalate‘s new Center City office at a ribbon cutting yesterday. Growing from three employees last summer to 21, the visual analytics firm had outgrown its office space at First Round Capital‘s University City headquarters. At the ribbon cutting, Curalate CEO Apu Gupta said his company’s growth was a sign that Philadelphia can be a place for tech companies to thrive. “Great opportunities don’t need to be found in the Valley, or the Alley,” Gupta said. “They can be found right on the banks of the Schuylkill,” referring to his new office that lines the river at 24th and Walnut Streets.

Situated in a historic building, a once-suburban startup is now based along a Northwest Philadelphia business corridor.
Earlier this month, BuLogics, Inc. announced that they have departed their Malvern headquarters and have set up shop at the prominent Mason Building, located at the intersection of Ridge and Midvale avenues in East Falls.
Founded in 2003, BuLogics is a wireless embedded software engineering firm that has completed numerous national projects, and recently adopted a new focus on energy management tools for apartment buildings and other multiple dwelling units. Among their local projects was a $175,000 award from the city in 2010 to install its energy control systems at the Philadelphia Navy Yard and the Inn at Penn, according to the company’s website.
