We believe that inequity have created a void of access. Hence, people experiencing some of the world's most challenging problems lack the power to design solutions, perpetuating the cycle of inequality and injustice. 

 

As a result, we led intentional outreach, mirror the demographics of the communities in which we operate, and partner with organizations serving entrepreneurs with disabilities. We also offer scholarships and pay-what-you-can options so that the lack of resources does not get in the way of an entrepreneurs' success. 

 

We will continue to focus on creating access for underrepresented founders, including people of color, women, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, 50+ individuals, immigrants, people experiencing poverty, returning citizens, and veterans. 

OUR BELIEVES

We believe in human ingenuity and its capacity to bring about progress. There are so many challenges facing our world from climate change and its impact on the food chain to homeless veterans and refugees displaced by war. We do not have the luxury to prioritize because it is all urgent and vital. We must multiply our impact, and the most sustainable and scalable way to do this is to support entrepreneurs working to solve local problems with a global footprint. 

We believe that both small businesses and high-growth start-ups deserve support and amplification. From AI-technologies helping individuals on the spectrum communicate, to catering companies hiring veterans, and eco-friendly high-heel shoes, Street Entrepreneurs values drive above all else. 

We believe that entrepreneurship is a powerful way to create economic mobility. Currently, too many individuals work full-time jobs and still live in poverty. The creation of start-ups and small businesses can change this.
