As a private, non-profit organization founded in 1958 as a partnership of the City of Philadelphia and the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia, our mission is to spur investment, support business growth, and foster developments that create jobs, revitalize neighborhoods and drive growth to every corner of Philadelphia. We offer flexible financing tools, a targeted portfolio of industrial and commercial real estate, and decades of Philadelphia-based knowledge to help our clients invest, develop and grow. PIDC works with companies of all sizes in every area of Philadelphia. We work on projects big and small with businesses, developers and non-profits in every sector.
