Breaking the Cycle of Poverty, by Helping one “Frustrated Entrepreneur” at a Time.

“If you asked me a year ago what I wanted to do with my life, I was lost. I never thought in a million years I would be this far in such a small amount of time.”

“Now I run my business full time. Being a full-time mother and still balancing classes has humbled me in ways I could never explain. Since joining Community Carrot I have grown so much as a person and a business owner.”

– Kayla, age 23, CEO, Eat with KB Catering, LLC

All entrepreneurs need good business instruction, access to mentors, and some startup capital. For those coming from low-income backgrounds, these resources are in short supply. This can create “frustrated entrepreneurs,” leading some young entrepreneurs to go down the wrong path.

Community Carrot provides 16 weeks of instruction, a nurturing community of supporters, and startup capital to level the playing field. We believe all entrepreneurs should have the foundation needed to succeed. We solve the frustrated entrepreneur problem!

By helping 18-to-24-year-old entrepreneurs from low-income backgrounds, we lift up families, their children and grandchildren, and their entire community.

Through Community Carrot, she learned requirements for running a food business, secured her licenses and training, and was introduced to representatives from the Seattle Seahawks and other area business leaders who have hired her catering business.
