WE’RE ON A MISSION

TO CREATE AN INCLUSIVE ECONOMY BY SUPPORTING ESTABLISHED SMALL BUSINESSES THAT ARE LOCATED IN LOW-INCOME COMMUNITIES OR ARE MINORITY OWNED.

At Interise, we achieve our mission through purposeful research that turns insights into actions; bold programs that close gaps in business knowledge, know how and networks; and national partnerships that create impact at local, regional, and state-wide levels.
