Welcome to Allentown SPARK! This small business funding initiative of the Allentown Chamber of Commerce is designed to help strengthen the City of Allentown by connecting local stakeholders, leveraging university resources, and promoting innovative solutions to local problems.
SPARK is financed by a grant provided by the Department of Treasury, under the administration of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, City of Allentown. The program promotes and accelerates small business growth after the COVID-19 pandemic.
The initiative is offering free one-on-one services to successful applicants in the following areas for up to 14 service hours: eCommerce/website design, social media/digital marketing, cybersecurity, strategic planning, finance, and legal. The Chamber of Commerce matches applicants with vendors to schedule the service hours.
Businesses located within the boundaries of Allentown with less than 50 employees are invited to apply but services will be fulfilled on a first come, first served basis, until there is no more funding available. Businesses may apply to be either a vendor of the program or apply to receive services.
If you’re interested in getting involved or learning more about Allentown SPARK, please email Liz Martin (LizM@lehighvalleychamber.org). Together, we can make a difference in our community.
