Philadelphia is an international science and
technology leader, but Philadelphia is also a city where entire communities are
missing out on the benefits of discovery and innovation.
iPRAXIS is working to connect these two Philadelphias through education and entrepreneurship programming that actively engages all communities. We believe that every students deserves a bright, happy, and successful future.
iPRAXIS is designed to excite our students - most of whom come from under-served minority communities -- about the promise science and technology offers to address the problems we face in the 21st century... and make sure these students see their role and place within the larger picture.
iPRAXIS is the originator of bench2BUSINESS, an effort to connect aspiring and established scientists and entrepreneurs of color in the Greater Philadelphia area.
This conference was designed to connect aspiring individuals of color from scientific fields with bio-tech advisers and investors who can offer skills and wisdom through discussions and success stories.
