ProsperUs advances economic equity in under-resourced communities by supporting entrepreneurs with opportunities and capital needed to build businesses, generational wealth, and vibrant neighborhoods.
We know entrepreneurs are all around us, and trusted community connectors are critical to reaching them.
We trust that residents know what the neighborhood needs, and successful small businesses help create thriving communities.
We believe a comprehensive set of resources is needed to overcome systemic barriers to business development and provide access to education, expert support, and capital as critical components to success.
As we work towards our mission, the ProsperUs team believes in:
Disrupting systems to advance racial, social, and economic equity
Striving for excellence as we serve the community
Being radically supportive and helpful
Embracing an entrepreneurial approach to implementing solutions
Building connection and trust
Embracing learning and continuous improvement
