Ventures is a Seattle-based nonprofit that empowers aspiring entrepreneurs with limited resources and unlimited potential. We provide access to business training, capital, coaching, and hands-on learning opportunities for entrepreneurs. We serve those in our community for whom traditional business development services are out of reach, with a focus on women, people of color, immigrants, and individuals with low income. Our ultimate goal is to support individuals to increase their income potential, achieve long-term financial stability, provide for their families, and enrich their communities through small business ownership.
Ventures Marketplace in Pike Place Market features jewelry, art, housewares, and more. We have hundreds of unique gifts at aﬀordable prices, handcrafted by 50+ talented local artists and crafts people. The Marketplace is also a business incubator that provides training, coaching, and hands-on learning opportunities to help small businesses launch and grow.
