About Us

We are a student-run hub of technological innovation at the University of Pennsylvania. We encourage and support students in the creation, development and commercialization of innovative technologies. Since 2003, students with a broad range of interests and skills have come here to explore, collaborate and learn as part of our community of innovators and entrepreneurs. We have encouraged and supported students with everything from development to commercialization, helping them bring their biggest ideas to life.
