“Our mission is to equip individuals with the necessary tools needed to start and sustain their operations”

Celebrating its 20th anniversary, 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. 

As evidence of our success, over the last 20 years, more than 800+ adults and youth complete TBC’s entrepreneurship courses each year, with 25 percent of these participants seeking on-going consulting services from TBC.

Thank you to our supporters
