Innovation has its place
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 at 3711 Market Street and through related programs that enable idea generators to meet, share and learn.
Quorum brings people together in three ways:
With high-speed Wi-Fi, plug-and-play stations and more white boards than walls, the Quorum Lounge is the ideal location to cross paths with Greater Philadelphia's entrepreneurial community. It’s a comfortable, free spot for informal coworking – or a place to touch down between meetings.
Quorum hosts a suite of programs designed to connect entrepreneurs to investors and the other resources they need to grow a successful business.
With 4,500 square feet of flexible event space and an urban loft feel, Quorum is an ideal venue for events, workshops, conferences and receptions.
Quorum may be a Science Center program, but it belongs to the region. Our Strategic Partner Alliance includes nonprofit organizations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware that share the Science Center's commitment to supporting innovation, entrepreneurship and tech-based economic development.
The Quorum Coworking Lounge is a free informal coworking space open to the public during business hours, Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-5 pm. The Quorum Coworking Lounge consists of soft seating areas for casual conversation, work stations with plug-and-play LCD screens, and Garage Offices with conference tables that seat four to six people. Quorum is equipped with free wifi, more white boards than walls, and – perhaps most importantly – free coffee!
Use of the Quorum Coworking Lounge is on a first-come, first-served basis. Users are asked to sign in.

We’re committed to facilitating a thriving entrepreneurial community in Greater Philadelphia. Quorum offers a suite of free signature programs designed to connect entrepreneurs to the investors, resources and advice needed to launch and scale a successful business. Most programs include a built-in networking session.
This monthly program matches a small group of entrepreneurs with an investor for an informal Q&A session over coffee and a light breakfast.
Entrepreneur in Quorum – or Entrepreneur IQ – is the newest Quorum signature program. Over the course of a year, two seasoned entrepreneurs will host monthly open office hours in Quorum for the startup community. Generously sponsored by Fox Rothschild.
This quarterly workshop takes a hands-on approach to showing entrepreneurs how to pitch their startups to investors. Steve “The Pitch Doctor” Bowman gives insight into what angels and VCs are looking for how to successfully pitch to them.
This monthly lunchtime seminar series highlights excellence in regional academic research. Topics range from life science and energy to materials sciences and IT. Generously sponsored by Dolfinger-McMahon Foundation.
Each month a different advisor comes to Quorum to meet one-on-one with entrepreneurs, answer their questions and offer targeted advice. Recent advisors include experts on tax incentives, financial reporting and website development.
A reporter from FlyingKiteMedia.com is in Quorum each month to meet entrepreneurs, learn about their companies, and offer advice on media relations.
This quarterly program gives startups and growing companies a look at best practices and business strategies via panel discussions and individual presentations by seasoned entrepreneurs and funders.
