The Runway Project

The Runway Project addresses the lack of financial resources that African Americans, and particularly African American creative entrepreneurs face, in trying to run successful small businesses. AmbitioUS is providing the Runway Project with operating costs for their Oakland operations and project support to develop a new community fund that expands amounts and types of capital available to the region’s African American entrepreneurs.
