The City of Trenton plans to present its 23rd Annual Trenton Business Week from October 17th to October 19th in Trenton. The TBW is a host of activities for business owners, entrepreneurs, and individuals starting businesses or changing careers; please visit the Program Schedule page.

This year, the City of Trenton is cooperating with the Purdue University Center for Regional Development to implement a new innovative program for the TBW, the Trenton Business Innovation Project. The Center will train interested partners in a strategic process to create four pathfinder projects including projects in support of the arts economy, shopping local, in support of food entrepreneurs, and waterfront development. Each group will meet regularly after TBW to implement their projects.

Networking events are held in different venues in Trenton. This year, the events will include a TD Bank Reception, MIDJersey Chamber of Commerce Central NJ Expo; Latino Business Networking Reception, and a Trenton Real Estate Workshop. The participants are drawn from the Greater Mercer County area.

A full description of the events will be presented on the TBW website at

Sponsors for the TBW include the City of Trenton, Mercer County, MIDJersey Chamber of Commerce, Trenton Downtown Association, Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce, Capital Region Minority Chamber of Commerce, College of New Jersey Small Business Development Center, TD Bank, Trenton Times, the Trentonian, Thomas Edison State University and many business partners.
