Entrepreneur Works Fund is a non-profit, certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) focused on growing small businesses and creating jobs in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. Our mission is to cultivate and promote successful entrepreneurs among underserved populations and in underserved areas of the region – entrepreneurs who then become economic engines in their own communities. By connecting hundreds of entrepreneurs each year with access to capital (microloans), one-on-one technical assistance, business training and networking opportunities, Entrepreneur Works Fund helps promising individuals develop economic self-sufficiency and create job opportunities through business ownership.
Since 1998 Entrepreneur Works has impacted approximately 5,000 entrepreneurs and advanced more than 450 microloans, investing a total of more than $1.7 million directly into neighborhood businesses. At least 79% of our clients identified as members of a racial minority, while 66% resided in low- to moderate-income households and 64% were women in our Fiscal Year 2017.
The Marketing and Program Associate will play a key role in developing and implementing the organization’s marketing strategies with the goal of attracting new customers and heightening the brand and visibility of the organization. Entrepreneur Works is focused on expanding its lending and business support programs and developing new, competitive products and services that are relevant to the populations that the organization serves.
