IGNITING COMMUNITIES

FORGING PIVOTAL PARTNERSHIPS

FORGING PIVOTAL PARTNERSHIPS

We’ve embarked on a city-by-city launch plan that supports cohorts of companies going through our program, provides access to funding and connects businesses to a local network of resources to help them grow. Companies will emerge with a better understanding of their business, cost and value drivers, and an operating system unique to them. They’ll also develop a network of peer companies, a plan to fund growth, and a stronger connection to their community.
“One city at a time, we can help underserved communities and serve as a catalyst for changing the economic landscape.”

CEO
