Presentation: Jumpstart West Philly

Jumpstart West Philly empowers West Philadelphia community members to be the developers of their own communities through entrepreneurial, community-oriented real estate development.

Jumpstart West Philly is modeled after Philly Office Retail's Jumpstart Germantown program, with an emphasis on training, networking, mentoring, and financing.

Jumpstart West Philly was launched via a collaborative partnership between The Enterprise Center, People’s Emergency Center, Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia, the City of Philadelphia Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity, and other West Philadelphia supporting partners, with initial funding support from Philadelphia LISC. The launch of the program stemmed from initial conversations and collaboration through the West Philadelphia Promise Zone Housing Committee.
