• Minority Economic Empowerment

  • The Berwyn Development Corporation strives to empower all businesses to ensure a strong economic presence in our community. We identify that there are many barriers that minority-owned businesses face in achieving this goal. As a result, the BDC has developed programs and partnerships with community organizations to assist minority-owned businesses. The first step that one can take in supporting this initiative is identifying one's self as a minority-owned business. 


  • Grow with Google Resources

  • The Berwyn Development Corporation maintains a list of all Berwyn businesses as a resource for the community. It is our desire to celebrate and promote Black-owned, Latinx-owned, woman-owned, veteran-owned, and LGBTQ+-owned businesses by listing them as such. 

    Please take a few minutes to fill out this form to designate your business as a diversely-owned business, and to give us consent to list and promote your business as such. 

    Reach out to us with any questions or ideas: info@berwyn.net
