About Street Entrepreneurs

Street Entrepreneurs envisions a grit-based economy where people with talent, drive, and hustle have access to the resources needed to sustainably solve the problems impacting their lives, their communities, and our world. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we do not profit from the businesses we support. Instead, harness the power of small business founders to create positive change and cultivate equitable communities. We do this by creating access to knowledge, connections, and capital.

The Street Entrepreneurs Accelerator was created to help aspiring entrepreneurs and early-stage founders bring their ideas to life and scale the impact and profitability of their ventures. The program launches this spring and consists of three-day sessions held in each of the District’s eight wards.
