About Street Entrepreneurs
Thank you so much for donating an item or service or experience! Our goal is to raise $15,000 with this auction, ALL of which will go directly to the entrepreneurs participating in Street Pitch 2020.
Street Entrepreneurs (SE) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that supports problem solvers who are creating change in their communities through one-of-a-kind enterprises.
SE invests in entrepreneurs by providing accessible and hands-on business education, and mentorship through a talent time bank for founders in the Washington DC metro area. Our mandate is to create a grit-based economy so that any individual with drive and a good idea can pursue their entrepreneurial dream, regardless of race, gender, or socioeconomic status.
We ask that you join us in our quest to democratize opportunities for all. Since the founding of our organization, we have provided business education to more hundredths and with your support, we will help many more. Together, we will create greater economic mobility and an equitable environment for entrepreneurship in the District and beyond.
Technically speaking, we are a 501c3 nonprofit and an accelerator; however, in practice, what we are building power. We believe that people experiencing problems have the insights needed to solve them.
We build power by providing 56 educational workshops per year, connecting nearly 1,000 start-ups to mentors and coaches, and top Founders to capital via Street Pitch.
