Kensington Avenue Storefront Challenge

Posted by Shift Capital on October 9, 2017

Shift Capital and its partners are launching the Kensington Avenue Storefront Challenge — an opportunity to participate in the reimagining of Kensington Ave as the safe, innovative, inclusive heart of the community. We will provide funding and support to accelerate up to 10 concepts in real spaces directly on Kensington Ave.

Breathe Life Back Into Kensington Avenue!

Shift Capital and its partners are launching a campaign to reimagine the Kensington Avenue Commercial Corridor. Like many former economic hubs in the city, the “Ave” has suffered from a world that left old urban-style, walkable retail behind. This is an opportunity for Philadelphia, and the world, to reimagine what tomorrow’s walkable, urban corridor might look like.

We are seeking both the dreamers and the doers, the old school and the new school. We can’t do this without a key ingredient…YOU, which may include entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs, Kensington residents, nonprofit organizations, restaurant owners, business owners, makers, and artists. Our goal is to find the right combination of old businesses and new concepts and support them in this effort.
