Lupe Fiasco is stepping away from the mic (and social media) to give a big hand up to future entrepreneurs. The Chicago native will be launching a non-profit that will assist those with a dream.
Speaking of social media, Lu made his announcement via his favorite platform, Twitter.
Co-founded by Lupe and Di-Ann Eisnor, the Neighborhood Start Fund is a nonprofit organization designed to aid entrepreneurs from specific neighborhoods with their respective business. “We need more diverse entrepreneurs bringing fresh ideas and new innovations to life,” reads a statement from the site. “So, we’ve created a neighborhood-specific fund to support entrepreneurs and start-ups from undeserved areas and of course so the best new ideas won’t go wasted. We provide access, network, workshops, mentoring and of course funding.”
Their first live pitch event will be November 13th 2015. To learn more about his foundation visit http://www.start.fund
