At Forward Cities, we value collaboration above all and are always interested in finding new partners, exploring new ideas, and forging new ground. Please share how you might like to engage with us as we collectively pursue equity for every entrepreneur.
Strengthening a local equitable entrepreneurial ecosystem requires intention, stakeholder alignment, local leadership, timely data, trust-building, authentic community engagement, and an actionable plan that can be invested in and sustained over time. We work with cities to help implement their plans, track their data, amplify emerging stories, and identify public and private resources to sustain this work over time.
