Next Street is a mission driven firm that is building the modern infrastructure for America’s small businesses who have been systemically left behind. We work with corporations, investors, government, financial institutions, and small business providers, offering a curated suite of solutions that help them connect small businesses in their networks with the right resources at the right time.

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.
