Increase Entrepreneurship with GOOD

Our primary goal is to increase Entrepreneurship in our two target areas of Memphis, TN and Brooklyn, NY. We plan on assisting 50 individuals in our first year of business to start their own companies or to expand their businesses in these two key areas.

Entrepreneurship is at historic lows with around 80 startups per 100,000 residents whereas in 1977 there was more than 160 startups per 100,000 residents. Our plan is to help support startup culture in areas that need new jobs more than others with subscription-based affordable business consulting. We are targeting both Memphis, TN and Brooklyn, NY for their unique cultural values that have a history of supporting community values.

Companies Assisted:

Our secondary goal is to teach entrepreneurship or financial education to 250 students across the country. Our courses are designed to engage people in areas that are typically overlooked. Our workshops are designed for all ages and backgrounds with a focus on encouraging individuals to focus on achieving great credit and investing in local community development.
