The Satellite Quorum program year will kick off on March 14 with a Get to Know Satellite Quorum program at Building 101 at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. The event will highlight the programs to be delivered by Satellite Quorum as part of the Energy Efficient Buildings (EEB) Hub. The Science Center’s program partners in the EEB Hub, Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern Pennsylvania, Delaware Valley Industrial Resources Center and Wharton SBDC, will also share their plans for the future and how the group as a whole will work together to activate an entrepreneurial ecosystem around the Advanced Energy Retrofit sector.
Get to Know Satellite Quorum will begin at 8:00 a.m. on March 14 with registration, networking and a continental breakfast. The formal program will run from 8:30 – 9 a.m. with additional networking opportunities immediately following. There is no charge for the event which will take place in Building 101 at the Navy Yard, the current home of the EEB Hub. Space is limited and advance registration is required.
