Hey, Members! As much as we love to make, it's time for a little Rest & Relaxation.
NextFab will be closed on Monday, September 7, 2015 in observance of Labor Day.
Take a day (or a few) away from the space. We look forward to seeing you upon your return. See you soon

Join NextFab on Friday, September 11th at 12 Noon for lunch with Hareesh Ganesh, co-founder and COO of TowerView Health.
TowerView helps the 1 in 3 Americans with a chronic illness manage multiple medications. TowerView’s patients receive pre-filled medication trays that fit into a connected pillbox like a K-Cup into a Keurig coffee machine. Their pillbox can sense when patients forget a dose and automatically sends a text or phone reminder. Unlike other smart pillboxes, they send patients pre-filled medication trays sourced from a pharmacy so patients never have to fill their own pillbox and they work directly with nurses to target outreach for non-adherent patients.
TowerView is rolling out with Independence Blue Cross in January 2015 and are in advanced discussions with numerous other health plans.
Reserve a spot on Ticketleap to have lunch with us and hear the founding story of TowerView.
The Pope is coming to the United States! It's an exciting time for many. Called "Pope Francis' September 2015 Apostolic Journey to the United States of America," his journey will include stops in Washington DC, New York City, and Philadelphia. (That's right, Philly's one of only three stops!)
His itinerary is chock full of events (which is pretty amazing, considering he is 78 years old!). And the City and NextFab alike are anticipating higher-than normal crowds. According to unofficial perimeter maps showing the impact that the visit might have on the city suggest a fairly crazy weekend in Philadelphia.
To keep things simple, NextFab plans to be closed during the weekend of September 26-27. We will resume normal operations after the event.
