On Friday, October 28, the Pennovation Center officially opened the doors to its three-story, 58,000-square-foot facility located on the banks of the Schuylkill River. The multipurpose space offers co-working, lab, and production spaces, and more resources for researchers, innovators, and entrepreneurs seeking collaboration and community.
“We’ve got a fantastic skill set when it comes to innovation at Penn,” said Dean Geoffrey Garrett in a video message to celebrate the launch.
“The Mack Institute is focused on a key challenge — innovation in large, mature organizations, that really want to innovate but sometimes find it hard to get that innovative mindset. Then on the student-facing side, [Penn] Wharton Entrepreneurship provides incredible opportunities for our students to learn by doing.”
The Center is already home to 20 startup companies and over 100 individuals, ushering in a new hub for innovation and entrepreneurship at Penn.
