Sam Katz

About Me

Sam Katz is a Philadelphian who has experienced a career in public and project finance, venture capital, civic affairs, development, politics and filmmaking. In 1999, Sam lost the closest Mayoral election in the city’s history in an overwhelmingly Democratic city. Following that defeat, Sam was selected as the CEO of Greater Philadelphia First a business civic group focused on regional issues. In 2003, he again ran for Mayor in a campaign that will long be remembered for the FBI's "bug", installed in the Mayor's office, and that swamped the campaign. Sam created a venture capital business which invested in Philadelphia area technology companies. Most recently, Sam is producing a series on the history of Philadelphia called, “Philadelphia: The Great Experiment”.
