THEORY OF CHANGE
We believe the entrepreneurial spirit strengthens communities and is more than simply starting businesses. It is a collaborative, problem-solving mindset needed in every aspect of our society. We believe when this mindset permeates a community it will not only drive economic growth but also enhance government effectiveness, the quality of education, and citizen engagement.
