JPOD @ Philadelphia

JPOD @ Philadelphia

The first-of-its-kind in the United States, the JPOD @ Philadelphia is a networking hub which includes a secure telecommunications conferencing system to connect regional innovators to the Johnson & Johnson Innovation network. The JPOD @ Philadelphia is a collaboration between Johnson & Johnson Innovation, JLABS and the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) to accelerate healthcare innovation and commercialization in Philadelphia and the region. It is located within the University of Pennsylvania’s Pennovation Center, a two-year-old full-service business and technology incubator.

The goal of the JPOD @ Philadelphia is to identify and accelerate the development of early-stage healthcare solutions across the region’s life science ecosystem that address significant unmet patient and consumer needs in medical devices, pharmaceuticals, consumer and heath technologies. The JPOD @ Philadelphia will also support those innovators with training, mentoring and networking programs designed to equip them with a mix of resources to help enable their success.
