JPOD @ Philadelphia launched at Pennovation Works

On Thursday, Nov. 1, Penn officially launched JPOD @ Philadelphia, a new partnership between the University and Johnson & Johnson Innovation, the health care giant’s collaborative arm. Located on the second floor of the Pennovation Center, JPOD operates on the same 23-acre site that hosts major corporations Hershey and Qualcomm, as well as dozens of startups and hundreds of entrepreneurs, scientists, and researchers.   JPOD @ Philadelphia, the first of its kind in the nation, is a networking hub that includes a secure telecommunications conferencing system to connect regional innovators to the J&J Innovation and JLABS network. It’s about leveraging the talent—particularly in the health sciences—that is rampant and unique to Philadelphia, as well as boosting it.   For more on the launch event, the new cohort of resident companies, and future programming, visit here.
