A Vetted Community

We Help You Scale
We’re focused on helping you pilot your prototype, get first revenue, establish corporate partnerships, hire talent and raise capital. Startups in our community succeed at four times the rate of failure.
Access to Academia & Industry
ic@3401 is a partnership between the Science Center and Drexel University. That means you have access to the expertise and networks of an over 50-year-old institution focused on commercializing promising technology, and a university recognized as an outstanding performer in terms of productivity in converting research inputs to innovation impact outputs.
As a start-up, we have a small team that must handle everything from sales to production, some of which simply cannot be done remotely. It was worrisome looking for a location where our small team could work but do so in a safe way following masking and social distancing recommendations.
