The Enterprise Center is a 501(c)(3) organization with over 29-years’ experience accelerating small and mid-sized businesses and creating jobs in low-income communities throughout Philadelphia. Our family of organizations: The Enterprise Center, The Enterprise Center Capital Corporation, and The Enterprise Center Community Development Corporation, invest, create, and cultivate a sustainable path for minority entrepreneurs to work together for economic growth in communities. The activities of The Enterprise Center and its affiliates are focused on three key areas:

  • BUSINESS: Our Business Development team helps position minority enterprises to compete in any marketplace through business education, management support, and industry connections, and builds their capacity so they can move to the next level.
  • CAPITAL: Our Capital Corporation provides patient debt and equity funds to small businesses helping them to start or grow, and to succeed. We spark revitalization in distressed, low-income neighborhoods by providing capital and financial literacy to local enterprises that have had limited access to funding.
  • COMMUNITY: The Enterprise Center Community Development Corporation works alongside residents to support neighborhood-driven initiatives aimed at spurring economic growth and regeneration in Walnut Hill.

The Enterprise Center, The Enterprise Center Capital Corporation, and The Enterprise Center Community Development Corporation each offers services for people who think beyond the status quo, whether its entrepreneurship or building or revitalizing communities. Our dynamic programs and services include business and financial technical assistance, access to capital, strategic outreach, and revitalization initiatives.

The Enterprise Center also hosts two business service technical centers onsite. The first, The U.S. Department of Commerce Minority Business Development Agency Business Center of PA, NJ and DE, provides technical assistance and network connections for minority-owned firms with revenues of $1M or more seeking procurement and financing opportunities. The second, The Mid-Atlantic Regional Small Business Transportation Resource Center, provides procurement assistance, bonding education, access to capital, and education/counseling to increase the ability of small businesses working within transportation and transportation-related industries.
