Since its inception in 1855, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia has pioneered discoveries that continue to benefit children worldwide. CHOP strengthened its commitment to innovation development in 2015 by creating the Office of Entrepreneurship & Innovation (OEI) to identify and support the development and commercialization of CHOP research and innovation to advance healthcare for children and families around the world.

OEI aims to support CHOP's internal innovators and researchers by providing strategy, technical and business acceleration support, and investment capital with the goal of developing and preparing technologies toward an eventual commercial exit to an industry partner or through the formation of a new company.

The Catalyst

The Office of Entrepreneurship & Innovation has given The Catalyst, our popular newsletter for innovators, inventors, and entrepreneurs, a refresh to create a one-stop source for news and updates from all areas of innovation at CHOP, delivered to your inbox.
