creating a community of opportunity

We work at the intersections of place-based community development, story, and entrepreneurship to accelerate economic and social impact.

Our Approach

We focus on action-oriented initiatives, partnerships and investments that have the potential to act as catalysts for larger, community-led efforts.


We break down silos, building programs and entrepreneurial ecosystems designed to encourage innovation, initiate results-focused collaborations, and unlock the collective power of engaged communities.


We open doors to connect, educate, and empower others.  From programs for entrepreneurs to the development of strong community voices, we work to bridge the gap between an idea and its realized impact. 


We target opportunities to better leverage existing resources and establish innovative new partnerships, encouraging & guiding local investments of financial and social capital for immediate, visible impact.
