Building Prosperous Business Communities
Prosperity Lab recognizes that underserved business corridors lack engagement, formal leadership, and the ability to advocate for resources and better policies. Many business districts have an under-taped resource, business owners. Many of whom, want to get involved and lead change in their communities but are not sure how to go about it. This vacuum of leadership creates inequity in the way resources are allocated and create their systematic exclusion in key policy decisions and city/County budget allocations.
Grassroots organizing this in our DNA, the team at Prosperity Lab is working towards empowering small business communities in Santa Clara and San Mateo County to find their voice, come together and start their own associations or business groups. Prosperity Lab foster emerging business leaders by providing them with tools, training and support.

Local anchor partners to embark on a data-driven, heart-led process to identify solutions and produce a plan to pilot, test, and implement those solutions.
Mobility LABs is designed as a cohort model with a key focus on peer learning across diverse communities in east San Jose. Prosperity Lab is a partner supporting the work of Simos Mayfair, Family Grail Services and Veggielution by providing business skills, financial literacy and digital training to Mobility Lab’s participants.
