COMPUTER WHIZ Khushboo Shah has a financial plan, staffers and customers all lined up for the high-tech business she wants to launch soon.
But the 36-year-old engineer, who lives in Center City with her young family, is missing one key thing:
Shah hasn't been able to attract start-up funding in Philadelphia for her technology-consulting firm, Cirrimize. But she says she has gotten offers elsewhere.
"I went to New York City and California, where I found people who said, 'We would invest in your company if you can move here,' " said Shah, who would prefer to stay in Philadelphia, which is close to her husband's work and where they want to raise their two children.
