Quorum

Innovation has its place

Overview

 

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 entrepreneurship and innovation communities through a central gathering space at 3711 Market Street and through related programs that enable idea generators to meet, share and learn.  

 

Quorum brings people together in three ways: 

 

Quorum Coworking Lounge

With high-speed Wi-Fi, plug-and-play stations and more white boards than walls, the Quorum Lounge is the ideal location to cross paths with Greater Philadelphia's entrepreneurial community. It’s a comfortable, free spot for informal coworking – or a place to touch down between meetings. 

 

Quorum Signature Programs

Quorum hosts a suite of programs designed to connect entrepreneurs to investors and the other resources they need to grow a successful business. 

 

Events at Quorum

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 Coworking Lounge

The Quorum Coworking Lounge is a free informal coworking space open to the public during business hours, Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-5 pm.  The Quorum Coworking Lounge consists of soft seating areas for casual conversation, work stations with plug-and-play LCD screens, and Garage Offices with 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.
