A CROWDFUNDED RETAIL INCUBATOR

Our unique programming helps new retailers get a strong start.

“People think brick and mortar is dying, but we believe that it is simply changing.”

The Collective Lab is part of the The Crowdfunded Commercial Corridor Program (CCCP).  CCCP identifies strong businesses within communities and helps them grow through training on operations and fundraising. It introduces business owners to local, certified investors. Each new business completes a rigorous process which will helps them improve their business operations and prepare to take on investors, while local residents are trained to on understand the private investment process and how to make educated investment decisions.

Additionally, business owners are eligible to operate a subsidized Pop Up experience within our selected Commercial Corridors to test their ideas and begin building an audience.  The result is improved local business districts operated by informed entrepreneurs that are supported by the local residents most likely to patronize the businesses on an ongoing basis.  It becomes a self-fulling opportunity for both businesses who have the funds and support they need and local residents who have ownership in the business community that serves them.
