About us

Our organizational mission is to help grow the local economy by accelerating underrepresented entrepreneurs, with a focus on women, people of color, and marginalized business districts. We envision a thriving city where all citizens have equitable opportunity to achieve economic prosperity through entrepreneurship. We believe that anyone with a great idea can succeed in a community with equitable access to resources, education and support. We will leverage creative strategies and community partnerships to deliver high-impact programs and support services. In all our work, we are equally as committed to scaling people and community trust, as we are to businesses and bottom-lines. Everything we do is aligned with our core values: inclusion, equity, diversity, innovation, growth, community, and trust.
