Quorum

Innovation has its place

Overview

 

Quorum is the place to thrive off connections. Drop in and get some work done, attend a signature program to network with industry experts, or host your own private event to bring people - and ideas - together. No matter how you choose to use Quorum, we’ve got flexible space, state-of-the-art technology, and a community that’s buzzing with fellow entrepreneurs, ideas, and advice. When you plug in to Quorum, you’re making connections that lead to innovation.

 

Plug in to Quorum in three ways: our Drop-In Lounge, Signature Programs and Event Space.

 

Quorum is on the move! We’ll be closing Quorum at 3711 Market Street on August 27th and reopening in our new space at 3675 Market Street on October 8th. We are accepting event space rental reservations for dates after October 8th. Email quorum@sciencecenter.org to learn more.

Coming in Fall 2018!

 

At 15,000 square feet, Quorum at 3675 Market Street will triple in size as it spreads over two floors. The new Quorum space will feature expanded drop-in space, breakout rooms, soft seating pods, and meeting facilities with capacity to host conferences and events for up to 300 people.

 

Street-level access and a lobby café will make Quorum more accessible and welcoming to the innovation community.

 

The new expanded space will enable the Science Center to expand its programmatic offerings to the entrepreneurial community, attract more national conferences and companies to Philadelphia, and foster new connections for innovation.

Quorum DROP-IN Lounge

Plug in to Quorum’s free, informal drop-in space. Open to the public Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-5 pm, the Quorum Lounge offers soft seating for casual conversation and work stations with plug-and-play LCD screens. Garage Offices have 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 drop-in Lounge is on a first-come, first-served basis. Users are asked to sign in.

 

Quorum is on the move! We're opening Quorum in our new space at 3675 Market Street in the next few weeks. Check back soon for updates. In the meantime, we're accepting event space rental reservations. Email quorum@sciencecenter.org to learn more.

Initially, I was attracted to Quorum because it was free and the location next to major universities was great. However, I quickly realized that the support that was available and the network I can build for myself far exceeded my expectations.

Signature Programs

 

We’re committed to facilitating a thriving entrepreneurial community in Greater Philadelphia. Quorum offers free 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.

 

And Quorum is growing! In fall 2018, Quorum will triple in size as it moves into 3675 Market Street. With 15,000 square feet over two floors and street-level access, Quorum will have more space and more programs for the community to convene.

 

The Science Center will also strengthen and enhance the offerings of its Quorum program by joining the Venture Café Network and offer Venture Café @ Quorum programming every Thursday. Venture Café will give the region’s innovation ecosystem an additional opportunity to convene, connect and spark new ideas.
