Next Street is in the business of helping successful urban companies become the economic engines they should be for their communities. We provide them with the access to financing and business expertise that has been missing from the urban development equation.
We work at street level with the business owners, property developers, city officials and nonprofit institutions that make up the urban enterprise. Beyond helping businesses grow, Next Street’s role is to:
Bring private, public and nonprofit resources together to create economic ecosystems: housing, schools, retail
Expand the capacity of local businesses to serve bigger customers, and get anchor institutions to buy more locally
Leverage public investment by connecting urban businesses to the capital markets
Most Next Street clients are in low- and moderate-income areas. Nearly three quarters are minority- or women-owned. 35% are nonprofits. In serving them, we draw on partners as diverse as Goldman Sachs and the Brookings Institution. Our own staff, including partners, reflects at every level the diversity of the market we serve.
