I alluded to this story in an earlier post, but my nearly 4,000-word story on urban entrepreneurship in America was published today by Next American City.
The story examines how urban entrepreneurship, by that meaning largely small-scale, minority businesses in inner-city areas, has become a mission in the nonprofit, government and for-profit sectors. A key aspect of the story was deep-diving into what’s happening in Newark, N.J., where Mayor Cory Booker has developed into an inspirational leader of the cause of urban entrepreneurship.
The story is behind a paywall, a new revenue stream for NAC, which recently dropped its print magazine in favor of publishing longform pieces once a week. You may purchase my story, or any other for that matter, for $1.99. A yearlong subscription costs $17.98.
