We have a small but mighty team focused on our mission. And we’re fun too (at least we think so).

The Ambassador Team

Thursday Gatherings don’t just happen on their own. Besides the Venture Café Philly staff, a team of volunteers (aka, Ambassadors) help produce the magic. If you like fostering connections at our events, greeting people as they visit, or serving up a drink to a thirsty innovator, we want to talk to you! Visit our Get Involved page for more information on how to join our awesome team.

The Ecosystem Development Team

Venture Café Philadelphia is part of the Ecosystem Development Team at the University City Science Center. This team is also made up of Quorum and the Marketing Team. Keep an eye out for these awesome people every Thursday around the cafe and 3675 Market Street.
