How Can A Business Association Help Your Business?
Business associations often serve as liasons betweentheir business membership and representatives in government, keeping their membership aware of grant opportunities, areas for business contracts, identfying partners that can help your business grow, and taking positions on small business-related legislation
What Makes Our Collaborative Different?
The West Philadelphia Corridor Collaborative is comprised of leaders and full support from 9 different participating business associations and is therefore the largest coalition of businesses in West Philadelphia.  Our association is large enough to serve directly on the Boards of major construction and real-estate developments where we help our members recieve contracts.

  We also have a long list of partners that includes local Universities and academic institutions, corporate organizations and political entities.
