PIDC Clients You Need to Know – Millennial Business Owners

This month, we’re recognizing our incredible PIDC clients who are millennial business owners. Millennials have contributed greatly to the new and innovative landscape of the business model as we know it – from embracing digital media to getting creative with e-commerce. Millennials were a big driver of Philadelphia’s population growth prior to the pandemic. According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau reported by the Economy League, Philadelphia’s millennials constitute 33.3 percent of the city’s total population and are 13.7 percent larger than the city’s baby boomer population.


PIDC is proud to provide services to local millennial business owners as they strive to grow and sustain their businesses. We caught up with a few of our millennial clients to discuss why they chose to operate their business in Philadelphia, how they define success as a millennial today, and their experience working with PIDC.
