America was built on the twin bedrocks of immigration and entrepreneurship. And when immigration and entrepreneurship intersect, magic happens.
The Science Center honored an extraordinary group of immigrant entrepreneurs as we announced the newest class of the Innovators Walk of Fame at our Nucleus event in September 2017.
Innovation in Philadelphia is as diverse as its citizens. And the Science Center is committed to examining our region’s innovation story through different prisms that reflect this rich diversity.
The six honorees started their journeys in different countries. They represent different sectors: technology, engineering, science, social impact and the arts. Yet their impact transcends all boundaries.
They have created jobs, developed disruptive technologies, advocated for entrepreneurship — and made our region, and our world, a better place.
A firm commitment to science and its commercialization creates an improvement in all aspects of our lives. It also generates significant economic wealth for our region while continuing to build on the tremendous intellectual brilliance reflected in our universities and educational institutions."
