Entrepreneurs Workstream

The Entrepreneurs workstream includes projects that are aimed at encouraging local entrepreneurs to start and grow new businesses.

Our Leap of Faith Assumption is that if Create on the Square helps to create an environment where local entrepreneurs can thrive, they will use their skills and drive to start new businesses, which will boost their income, benefiting society and Create.
