WE INCUBATE INNER CITY ENTREPRENEURS

We are working towards shifting 10% of North Omaha into an entrepreneurial mindset.

 

THIS IS US

Inner cities are facing unprecedented challenges. Cycles of poverty and crime are ravaging the lives of the next generation.


That’s why we’ve launched an inner city entrepreneurship program called Shift. A 16-week entrepreneurship incubator designed to train, mentor, and resource entrepreneurs to shift into an entrepreneurial mindset.


We envision thousands of inner city entrepreneurs once apart of the problem now a part of the solution by launching and scaling successful and viable businesses.


Every inner city entrepreneur deserves to be successful and in control of their future.
