Before the BRIDGE
More Value, More Resources
Entrepreneurial ecosystems in most communities are not set up to ensure that the individuals running a local Mom and Pop Shop will be seen as “entrepreneurs.” The ecosystems in most communities aren’t designed to look for ways to ensure economic opportunity is accessible to those who are just getting started, or those who don’t have financial backing, or have certain connections. The ecosystems in most communities have a definition for what “entrepreneurship” is and if someone doesn’t fit into whatever that definition is, there’s really nothing in place to connect that person to the resources they need to help them build their business.
This is why BRIDGE exists. To connect the little guys, the brand new business owners, the local “mom & pop shops”, the established entrepreneurs, the daring start-ups, the one- or two-man operations who didn’t quite know where they fit. Everyone deserves (and needs) an outlet, a source of connection to like-minded people, and representation.
