Startup Corps is an after-school social entrepreneurship incubator for youth aged 13-19 serving Philadelphia. The program aims to cultivate entrepreneurial and business skills in high school students with solution-driven ideas for bettering their city or neighborhood.

Startup Corps is defined by their daily focus on actually building a business (instead of just talking or thinking about it), and aims to teach youth about the hard work and support group needed when taking an idea into reality by supporting them in building their micro-ventures.

The non-profit incubator first helps its students identify a problem or obstacle in their communities and then helps them create an organization or business that serves as a means to a solution.
