Founded in 1963, the Science Center is the oldest and largest urban research park in the United States. We’re a dynamic hub for innovation, entrepreneurship and technology development in the Greater Philadelphia region. Our 31 nonprofit shareholders include many of the distinguished colleges, universities, hospitals, and research institutions located throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. Our goal is to inspire a community of knowledge, spark the spirit of enterprise, and help expand and strengthen the Philadelphia region's technology sector. We provide lab and office space for start-up, growing and established companies. We offer business incubation, support services and programming for entrepreneurs and start-up companies. We help move technology out of the lab and into the marketplace, where it can benefit the region and the world.
