Why Venture House for jobs & economy?
Entrepreneurs and artists are the major drivers of jobs and culture in the City: research shows that the majority of net new job growth is from early stage companies, not big business. When Venture House invests in these key people by providing them high-quality, great-location housing, we’re investing in getting our City’s economy Building Farther Faster™. We specifically target entrepreneurial companies that commit to job creation goals, providing economic development directly. We also work in partnership with local workforce development programs, including vocational and technical schools and community colleges, to use skilled trades and professional students in training, to help them get practical experience and get launched into the workforce, indirectly creating even more jobs.
