Price Hill seeking applicants for storefront business expansion

Price Hill Will, the comprehensive community development corporation serving all three Price Hill neighborhoods, is looking for local entrepreneurs to apply for a new program to start or expand small businesses.
Successful completion of the program will include storefront space in Price Hill’s Warsaw Business District. Interested parties should start by applying here by Dec. 16.
Selected applicants will participate in a four-week workshop featuring information sessions and professional networking to help grow their business and compete with fellow entrepreneurs for the storefront location.
“The primary motivation is to start to reactivate the Warsaw Avenue business district,” said PHW spokesperson Sam McKinley.

Through the program’s culminating pitch competition, McKinley said, the strongest of those businesses will earn a “pop-up” storefront presence to further boost the recovering business district.

“We also want to do everything we can to set them up for success and, we hope, a long-term home in Price Hill," McKinley said.
PHW has worked with organizations like the East Price Hill Business Alliance, the West Price Hill Merchants Association, Mount St. Joseph University and the Incline Incubator to revitalize Glenway, Warsaw and Price avenues, the W. Eighth Street corridor and areas of Lower Price Hill. The organization’s goals include supporting longstanding businesses and bringing in new commercial ventures to reinvigorate the up-and-coming neighborhood.
To learn more about the program, contact [email protected] or McKinley at [email protected].
