Meeting Social Entrepreneurs Where They Are

Supporting minority entrepreneurs–especially those leading social enterprises–is vital to the economic progress of neighborhoods and the overall well-being of Baltimore City. We accompany social entrepreneurs (SEs) through the full lifecycle of the entrepreneurship journey with our 5-stage Enterprise Development Pipeline, allowing leaders to come into the development cycle at any stage.
