Next Street is a mission driven firm that mobilizes capital, customers, and capabilities to small businesses and entrepreneurs that have been systemically held back. We work with foundations, government, corporations, and CDFIs for a better future for small business.

Our work is anchored in the belief that small businesses are the drivers of economic and community development and the engines of inclusive growth. We believe that when we elevate small businesses, we help individuals, families, and neighborhoods reach their potential. We believe that when we empower entrepreneurs and small business owners that have faced disproportionate barriers, we break down barriers to accelerate a more just economy.
