Grow Local Solutions
What We Do
We lead collaborative initiatives that build on local development solutions.
Capacity building with diverse organizations sometimes calls for external technical support. When there is a groundswell of local interest, we collaborate with outside experts to create significant growth opportunities for grassroots organizations that are addressing a shared challenge.
FCDE’s Small Business Initiative (SBI) is an example of collaborative capacity building that improves local organizations’ effectiveness leading small business development. Combining our training partner Street Business School’s proven curriculum with FCDE coaching, networking and competitive seed funding, SBI offers organizations fighting extreme poverty the tools and opportunities to lift up local entrepreneurs.
