Philadelphia Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week 2020
Providing minority business owners with access to resources and connections.
Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week highlights minority businesses and the resources that help them grow. Throughout the week, organizations from across the region will host virtual events focused on this year’s theme, “Preparing for the Next Normal.”
Join the Office of Economic Opportunity and kick off the 36th annual Philadelphia MED Week! You’ll also hear about how the City is working to modernize procurement practices.
Attendees will discuss their experience with transitioning a small business during a global pandemic and share strategies for success.
Becoming certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) and Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) opens doors to a network of other minority entrepreneurs. It can also connect you with corporate and government partners who want to work with women-owned and minority-owned businesses.
This webinar will show you how to start a business in Philadelphia. You’ll learn how to determine the appropriate legal structure, register with the IRS, use bookkeeping best practices, and operate in the city.
Join the Department of Commerce's Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) virtually as they kick off the 36th Annual Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week in Philadelphia! This year's MED Week will be entirely virtual, with a series of engaging events and activities to help support minority businesses in Philadelphia.
At the virtual kick off, OEO will share information about the more than two dozen events held by partner organizations during the week. We'll also recognize several people and businesses that have had an impact over the past year.
