Alongside this, my partner Lara and I are working on a storytelling project which will highlight certain entrepreneurs and their businesses to be shared on ProsperUS’ social media and website. Hopefully, the stories we write will inspire other Detroiters to inquire about creating their idea for a small business, helping them overcome the stigma that starting your own organization is too tall a task for everyone. Throughout DukeEngage, I am continually looking for places where ProsperUS can improve and grow. In doing so, I hope to make the company even more equitable, accessible, and effective. Through this, the companies that work with ProsperUS in the future will be more satisfied and confident in their ideas while also allowing ProsperUS to allocate resources more efficiently.
