No matter what its size, a community needs a gathering place. For Greater Philadelphia’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, that place is Quorum. Quorum unites the region’s entrepreneurship and innovation communities through a central gathering space on the Science Center campus and through related programs that enable idea generators to meet, share and learn.
FirstHand provides curious minds access to the knowledge and resources of the Science Center. Through interactive programming, FirstHand serves local youth from under-resourced schools and the teachers and professionals from their communities, providing a gateway to creative, design-based applications of science and technology.
The Regional Affinity Incubation Network – or RAIN – convenes the community that supports innovation and entrepreneurship in Greater Philadelphia. From coworking spaces to accelerators and incubators, the RAIN network members help grow the region’s innovation ecosystem. The Science Center hosts an annual RAIN Conference each July in Quorum.
Innovation Plaza is an active place for people who work and live within and around uCity Square to relax, socialize, work and play. With vibrant plantings, chess, checkers and backgammon tables, free wi-fi, and spots to just stop, sit and ponder, Innovation Plaza inspires ideas and reflects the dynamic energy of the Science Center, uCity Square, and our partners and stakeholders.
The Science Center’s Digital Health Accelerator (DHA) supports digital health companies ready to transition from research and development to sales. The program selects promising companies from around the world and provides them with funding, collaborative workspace, professional mentorship, and introductions to key healthcare stakeholders and investors in the Greater Philadelphia region.
