For the past 5 years, Philadelphia's StartupPHL Call for Ideas grant program has been awarding grants to local entrepreneurs and startups. Once again this year, the program is attracting small businesses to the city as "startup hub." This year, 6 grants were awarded, totaling $130,675.

Philadelphia's StartupPHL Call

The annual StartupPHL Call for Ideas awards program is a five-year program that enables the city to attract entrepreneurs who will create jobs and increase business. The grant program is sponsored by the Department of Commerce. The focus of this year's program included young people, small-business owners and immigrants.

The grants encourage companies to establish their business headquarters in the city and take advantage of the existing business community. Grants average about $25,000 each.

The six organizations who were recently awarded grants include a company that develops data science curriculum for city students, a foundation that serves low-income communities, a company that helps students produce, write and record original music, and a company that teaches technical, fabrication and design skills.

Call for Ideas grants have been awarded since October 2012. For more information on StartupPHL, visit:
