PFCUs Inaugural Small Business Networking Event a Success

PFCU recently partnered with the New Kensington Community Development Corporation (NKCDC) and Fishtown Area Business Association (FABA) to develop a survey aimed at gaining a better understanding of the business climate in the Fishtown and New Kensington neighborhoods.

On Wednesday, April 30th, over 30 business owners from the community gathered at O3 World in Fishtown to hear the results of the survey during PFCU’s second annual Small Business Networking Event. The event is part of a larger series being rolled out across various locations within PFCU’s footprint over the next several years to encourage networking and socializing among small business owners.  It also serves as a venue to report on the economic business climate of a specific Philadelphia neighborhood – and what that means for small businesses.

Mike Driscoll, Vice President of Business Development at PFCU, presented on the current state of the Fishtown/New Kensington business climate, based on results from 93 completed surveys. The survey aimed to learn the goals and economic needs of the small business owner and addressed small business-oriented topics influencing small business owners on a hyper-local level.

Following the presentation, attendees had the opportunity to discuss amongst each other their reactions to the findings and some of the trends in what people mentioned as issues and obstacles to starting a business.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Fishtown/New Kensington Small Business Networking Event and for helping to make it such a success. We look forward to planning the next event of its kind and continuing our mission to make Philadelphia a better place to work, play and live. Stay tuned for which neighborhood is next!
