Two local startups are among the twenty highest-valued startups in Greater Philadelphia, writes Kennedy Rose for The Business Journals.

Among Montgomery County businesses, Ambler-based Phenom ranked highest in fourth place. The company’s most recent valuation was $1.43 billion as of April 7.

Genomind in King of Prussia ranked at No.16.
