Mission

The Business Center ("TBC") is a 501(c)(3) that provides the education and business networking programs necessary to strengthen the business formation necessary to contribute to improving Northwest Philadelphia's minority business ecosystem. Our programs better position small business 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 "ins and outs" of accessing capital, marketing and competing we help proprietors of any age gain confidence in knowing they can execute the fundamentals. And since the value of networking cannot be overstated, increasingly member networking opportunities targeted at growing industry sectors are a vital component of the services we provide. 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 through the organization.
