Tiny WPA was selected for the latest round of Startup PHL Call for Ideas grants! Thank you Mayor Nutter and Deputy Mayor for Economic Development Alan Greenberger as well as all those from the City of Philadelphia's Commerce Department, PIDC and First Round for supporting our Building Heroes and enabling us to grow The Building Hero Project, our community design leadership program for ages 16 and up. This is an incredible vote of confidence in the hard work that we and all of the Building Heroes have put forth to create this unique program, team and collection of products that are being purchased by people all over the world. This grant represents the first step in expanding the program beyond the prototype developed over the past years.
Also congratulations to Corzo Center for Creative Economy at the University of the Arts, Refugee Women's Textile Initiative, Schoolyard Ventures, and TechGirlz Charitable Foundation who also were selected! Tiny WPA is proud to be among such aspiring entrepreneurs and thoughtful leaders in Philadelphia.
