They each got their start using creative capital from a mix of United States government funds and private bank investors. Finding creative community investment funds for startups isn't reserved for the wealthy. Using government funds to kick-start economic development in underserved communities isn't a new idea. We'll talk to philanthropists, venture capitalists and community investors who purposefully invest in growing startups in the poorest American communities you could ever imagine. Who knew?
It's good to talk.
