Hope Street Group is a non-profit, nonpartisan organization of business leaders and professionals dedicated to renewing the American dream of economic opportunity and prosperity. We believe in promoting ‘Opportunity Economics’ solutions to policymakers of both parties–policies that will give all American families the chance to achieve middle class status, while ensuring that America’s economy and businesses remain strong and competitive in the 21st century.
In an Opportunity Economy, all people have fair access to markets for jobs, homes, and capital; all children have educational opportunities that allow them to fully realize their potential; and government burdens are lifted – especially for those who are just beginning to develop their earning power and build their savings. In an Opportunity Economy, people are encouraged to take risks and invest in themselves. As a result, small businesses thrive, large businesses have a workforce that is prepared to maintain their competitive edge in the global economy, and the number of families able to join the ranks of the middle class swells in size.
Through virtual technology and local chapters, Hope Street Group is building networks of business professionals to create evidence-based policy solutions that can be adopted by policymakers at local, state and national levels.
