The following letter was sent by the PHL Neighborhood Growth Project to neighborhood, business, and civic leaders.


As a new or small business, navigating the bureaucracy of local government can be overwhelming and challenging. However, with the advice, mentorship, and networking that comes from a connection to other C-suite, established executives, the process can seem much less daunting.

The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia is proud of the CEO Access Network which forges relationships between Chamber member companies and small business owners from underrepresented communities. The CEO Access Network seeks to help disability-, LGBTQ-, minority-, veteran-, and women-owned companies thrive and share in our city’s prosperity.

The CEO Access Network is now accepting applications for the 2019-2020 cohort! If you are interested in participating in this great opportunity, apply by Friday, August 30th.

When we come together and support all communities in all corners of our city, we can create an inclusive prosperity and truly become a shining city on the hill.

Thank you,

Rob Wonderling
