BUILDING URBAN STARTUPS
Monica Street aims to help build thriving businesses in underserved urban communities by working with urban communities on generating business ideas that focus on urban-market needs, nurturing and working with budding urban entrepreneurs on the most promising of these community-based business ideas, and using shared expertise and resources to turn those ideas into thriving urban-focused businesses.
Monica Street is on a mission to build urban startup studios in every major underserved community in the U.S., helping entrepreneurs in underserved urban communities launch hundreds of startups focusing on urban community needs.
THE POWER OF PEOPLE
At Monica Street, we know there is a wealth of untapped talent in our underserved urban communities. We believe in the power of the human spirit and the power of community to unlock that talent.
BUILDING MONICA STREET
The heart of our approach begins with the community. We are building Monica Street to deliver robust business solutions for community-identified needs. Ours is a learning-based approach: at the core is connecting with the wisdom of the community, nurturing the launch of community-focused economically sustainable urban businesses, applying analytical rigor in evaluating outcomes, and adapting and refining our approach for the greatest long-term impacts. During the coming months, our primary focus is on community outreach, starting in Los Angeles and Detroit. And we'd love to hear from YOU!
