Scale established
small businesses, create jobs, and develop local economies.

Interise licenses our Streetwise ‘MBA’™ to partners who deliver it through their own locally branded programs. We provide the curriculum, training, quality assurance and evaluation, enabling our partners to effectively and efficiently launch a national program.

We make partners look good,
very good.

A turnkey solution for economic development.

Our award-winning StreetWise ‘MBA’™ curriculum uses a facilitated peer-learning method to provide established small business owners with the business knowledge, management know-how, and relationships they need to achieve scale.

One of 25 "must see" executive education programs in the world.

On average, Interise small businesses create jobs at 5x the annual rate of the private sector.

Each year, Interise uses a set of social and economic indicators to evaluate Streetwise ‘MBA’™ alumni and their businesses. We know impact: Interise businesses are responsible for the creation of over 30,000 jobs.

It's not just about creating jobs. It's about what kind of jobs, who gets the jobs, and where the jobs are.

Rising income inequality, widening wealth gaps, rapid gentrification...

These are a few of the reasons we are partnering with government agencies, local institutions, and business associations to make our StreetWise ‘MBA’™ available to small businesses in lower income communities, and minority-owned small businesses.

85% of Interise businesses are owned by women, minorities, immigrants, or located in a lower-income community.
