Who are the Humans Behind Philadelphia Zoning?


Alexa Ahrem

Alexa was working as an expediter for a zoning attorney when she identified gaps in the market regarding how expediting services were being delivered. She founded Philadelphia Zoning to provide effective permit and zoning expediting services and also set out to educate and empower the public around the complex systems of permitting and zoning. Alexa formerly owned an electronic music event production & marketing brand that serviced companies such as Live Nation and SFX. Alexa loves that she gets to support fellow entrepreneurs by working with them through Philadelphia Zoning. You can find her working out, helping other entrepreneurs launch their business, or volunteering her time to helping stray cats in Philadelphia.
