For Diversely-Owned Businesses

Capital You Need to Succeed

PIDC supports BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color)-, women-, veteran-, immigrant-, disabled-, and LGBTQ+ owned and operated businesses with access to capital and business support services to scale, pursue growth opportunities, build wealth, and create quality jobs in Philadelphia. PIDC can often help fill critical funding gaps, even if you’ve been turned down by a traditional lender.

“We were looking for money to build out our new space, purchase inventory for the upcoming holiday season, and hire new staff. PIDC supported us in helping us secure a Restart PHL Loan. These funds are a huge lifeline to us at this pivotal moment in our business and are helping us to grow in ways we only imagined.”
