Issue Area


Phoenix Development Fund is a Chicago-based non-profit organization that provides business development services to entrepreneurs and small business owners on the South Side of Chicago.  These beneficiaries today lack awareness, education, and access to traditional sources of financing and consultation services.  This venture team will hold nine-week training and business strategy sessions to support small businesses, while connecting them to opportunities for additional sources of financing.  PDF aims to help the economic prospects of small business owners in one of the hardest-hit communities in America, using methods more usually deployed in emerging markets.
