Witnessing the steady growth of creatives in need of business guidance, entrepreneurs Kimberlee Williams and Jeff Billingsley conceived the Newark Business Hub – a B Corporation – as a 360 initiative where creative entrepreneurs would receive not only
the skills to grow and sustain their respective businesses, but to create ownership opportunities for creatives through community revitalization efforts. Together with primary partner and Rutgers University-Newark liaison, Lyneir Richardson, the team has
a firm grip on what’s needed to see these innovative entrepreneurs thrive in a rapidly growing metropolis that serves as the backdrop to a burgeoning creative arts epicenter.
To disrupt the gentrification paradigm by assisting creative entrepreneurs to accumulate wealth through ownership opportunities that leverage community revitalization efforts in rapidly appreciating urban markets.
