How do you transform a community?
By helping the community transform itself.

E.G. Woode is an organization dedicated to positive change in under-served neighborhoods.  We do this by helping entrepreneurs and small business owners from these neighborhoods develop and start their businesses by utilizing real estate as a platform. We acquire and redevelop real estate for those businesses to lease, while also providing them with overhead support such as marketing, branding, design, operations and strategy. 

As a collective, the entrepreneurs are also part owners, forming a stronger, community focused business base that not only serves the community, but hires from and reinvests in the community.  With home grown businesses, fewer economic resources leave the community, allowing the community to thrive.

E.G. Woode provides full life cycle support for its entrepreneurs.  From shaping an idea into a business all the way through expanding to multiple locations, E.G. Woode is there with training, support, and a network of experts to help with everything in between. See for yourself the impact that we are having on the lives and businesses of our entrepreneurs.
