Ken Weinstein, the Godfather of NW Philly Real Estate, is the guest of this episode. Ken is the founder of Jumpstart Germantown and President of Philly Office Retail. Jumpstart is a successful community development program that combines slow, steady growth, scattered site rehab, and a mix of affordable and market-rate housing.
"Jumpstart was created to reduce blight and increase investment in our communities," says Ken. "By offering opportunities for local entrepreneurs, we can keep wealth local. With Jumpstart everyone wins - aspiring developers, longtime residents, and other community partners all benefit from additional investment in their neighborhood."
