Become a Venture Café Speaker

We want ideas that help people understand innovation on a broader and more applicable level.

Venture Café Philadelphia offers a reflection of the diverse, talented innovation community of Philadelphia and the region. Our Thursday Gatherings provide the innovation community with access to high-quality sessions and educational programming designed to create intentional spaces.

Twice monthly on Thursdays, creators, entrepreneurs, investors, coworkers, students, and visionaries convene, connect, and build relationships at Venture Café.

Our goal is to provide our community with new, exciting, thought-provoking sessions to fuel conversation at Venture Café. We want ideas that help people understand innovation on a broader and more applicable level. Events should inject new ideas and perspectives into the conversation and enrich our thinking.
