Become a Venture Café Ambassador

Venture Café Philadelphia relies on the generosity of volunteers who enjoy giving back to the community and who share our commitment to equitable entrepreneurship and innovation.

Ambassadors play an important role in our community. They are chief connectors and champions of the Venture Café culture.

How Can You Help?

Welcoming Team

Set the first impression for guests at Venture Café by assisting with registration to ensure guests are welcomed and greeted properly.

Bar Team

The bar team assists with the running of the bar during the Thursday Gathering, a key part of our social engineering infrastructure.


During any given Thursday Gathering, we welcome not only guests but a range of speakers to our event that all need help to navigate the event.


Help everyone get the most out of their Venture Café experience – especially first-timers who are unfamiliar with the setting.


Help where it's needed on the night!

Contribute to make our events happen and connect with the innovation ecosystem in a unique way!
