To make things HAPPEN

Isolation is the enemy of innovation: relationships are a critical success. We believe that innovation is fueled by collaboration, and storytelling. Venture Café enhances and accelerates the creative process through spaces, programs, and conversations for individuals and organizations to gather and build relationships – and ultimately improve the human condition. 

Exchanging ideas is just the beginning. Venture Café Philadelphia is the start for connecting people and fueling innovation. It creates the forum for connecting innovators who seek to create positive change in both local and global communities. 

We’re on a mission.

Create deeper connections in the digital and local ecosystem

Attract a diverse audience of participants and speakers

Foster inspiration and inclusivity

Experience Thursday, every week

What drives us.
