Jumpstart Germantown Developers’ Network
“Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.”
Who We Are
Jumpstart Germantown, an initiative spearheaded by Philly Office Retail to facilitate the revitalization of the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia through high quality residential renovations. We are working to identify fellow developers who share our interest in investing in the future of Germantown. Through mentoring, networking and providing financial resources to these developers, Jumpstart Germantown will remove blight and deteriorated properties from its residential neighborhoods, making Germantown a better place to live, work and enjoy.
The Developers’ Network is about making connections between community developers and building mutually beneficial relationships to “grow the pie.” Real estate development can be a very isolating and frustrating process and developers often fight over the same piece of the “pie.” By sharing resources, such as tenants, contractors, vendors and potential properties, developers, focusing on Germantown, can work together to be more productive and profitable, thereby expanding the “pie.”
Jumpstart Germantown was created with the idea that community developers are not in competition with each other. Developers are working towards a shared goal, the revitalization of Germantown and increased property values. The Developers’ Network meets four times per year, allowing participants to enjoy a nice dinner, hear an informative guest speaker and network to their heart’s content. Between Network meetings, developers communicate on Jumpstart Germantown’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/jumpstartgermantownnetwork/) providing for an ongoing dialogue of ideas and suggestions. Nancy Deephouse, a developer and Germantown resident, coordinates the Developers’ Network. Please contact Nancy at Nancy.Deephouse@gmail.com if you want to sponsor an upcoming Developers’ Network meeting or have an idea for a guest speaker.
When We Work Together, Germantown Wins
By working together, real estate developers and investors can accomplish more than by working alone. From encouraging each other to sharing ideas and resources, we can make an immediate positive impact on the Germantown community.
