To understand the impact of Build from Within Alliance organizations, Wilder Research conducted phone surveys with BfW-assisted owners. This report presents information about the business owners, their households, and the communities they live in.
Neighborhood Development Center (NDC) is a nonprofit organization that works in Twin Cities low-income neighborhoods to help emerging entrepreneurs develop successful businesses that serve and revitalize their communities. They also supported members of the Build from Within Alliance which provide similar support in communities across the United States. This multi-year evaluation documents NDC's impact on NDC-assisted businesses, as well as on the neighborhoods where owners reside and operate businesses.
Wilder Research operates as an independent research unit of the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation. As one of the nation’s largest nonprofit research and evaluation groups, we work with nonprofits, foundations, and government entities to inform decisions and improve lives.
