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 innovation community through a central gathering space at 3711 Market Street. A steady stream of programs offered at Quorum enable idea generators to meet, share and learn.


Quorum brings people together in three ways: 


Quorum Drop-in Lounge

The Quorum Lounge is the ideal location to cross paths with Greater Philadelphia's entrepreneurial community. With high-speed Wi-Fi, plug-and-play stations and more white boards than walls,, it’s a comfortable, free place to get work done.. And a welcoming place to touch down between meetings.

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 DROP-IN Lounge

The Quorum Lounge is a free informal drop-in space open to the public Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-5 pm. The Quorum Lounge offers soft seating areas 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 Coworking Lounge is on a first-come, first-served basis. Users are asked to sign in.

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.
