Triskeles staff visited Philadelphia University on Henry Ave in NW Philly today to talk about possible collaborations. Amazing place! Started in the 1800’s by folks connected with the textile industry, it is now a graduate and undergrad university of 3600 students on a beautiful campus near the Wissahickon Park.
Zoe McKinley, Director of the Blackstone Launchpad, and her boss, D. R. Widder, VP of Innovation, gave us the $50 tour of the studios, shops, the DEC Center and other buildings. Phila U offers a variety of hands-on degrees incorporating extensive experiential education and industry partnerships. Seems like a very innovative and forward-thinking place!
A real eye-opener. Don’t overlook this place!
