Seeing is believing, and when there are no visible examples
of success in the neighborhood, then possibilities shrink.
We aim to help water the seeds of every underserved community in New York, because growth is success, and success is empowering.
Through mentorship, or simply exposure to successful people that look like us in roles that don’t necessarily exist in the neighborhoods we’re from.
Creating our own ventures that speak to our past legacies in the present, for our future.
Supporting local entrepreneurship.
