The question behind
our impact stories
What brought you here?
The Urban Engine team loves this question.
We rarely hear the same answer twice.
After asking hundreds of people how they ended up at Urban Engine we began to realize the dynamic impact our work has on the communities we serve. So, we started to capture the stories of people in our networks and the unique ways our programs and resources have made a difference in their entrepreneurial journey. Thus, The Collective Ambition was born.
The Collective Ambition™ is Urban Engine’s central hub of impact stories. It is our collection of the notable people and ideas that inspire us to spark, fuel and ignite the next generation of visionaries through our community programming. You will find features of founders and their startup stories with a focus on how their professional developments make an impact in their local cities. Experience the waves of transformation these motivational influencers have stormed through their hard work.
