The Business Center


The Business Center (TBC) is a 501(c)(3) that provides education and business networking programs necessary to strengthen business formation necessary to improve Northwest Philadelphia’s business ecosystem for the underserved. Our programs better position small businesses and startups to develop and vet their business concepts and further establish their reputations. We achieve our mission by two primary means:

  • By teaching the basic business “ins and outs” of accessing capital, marketing and building a team, we help individuals of any age gain confidence in knowing they can execute the fundamentals and understand what it means to be fully capitalized.
  • We offer networking opportunities, targeted at growing industry sectors, which our members find invaluable in growing their businesses.

As evidence of our success, more than 300 adults and youth complete TBC’s entrepreneurship courses each year, with 25 percent of these participants seeking on-going consulting services from TBC.
