Allen Neighborhood Center which is not yet complete will serve as a hub for capacity building, neighborhood enhancement, and for activities that promote the health, safety, stability, and economic well-being of Eastside residents and other stakeholders.
That environment is called the Center for New Enterprise Opportunity, and its mission is to provide high quality space and services for emerging entrepreneurs and their businesses. We must learn to invest in ourselves, in our communities and in growing local businesses. We must connect investors to the places where they live, creating vital relationships and new sources of capital for new enterprises.
The Runway helps fashion designers create a foundation for their business and provides them with the resources needed to produce their collections and ultimately move their product to market.
We accomplish this by providing our Designers-In-Residence with industry expertise, business and marketing plan development, a collaborative work space featuring state of the art equipment, individual office space and access to retail and event space to sell and showcase their product line.
The Runway and its designers are out to prove that you do not have to live in NYC in order to make your fashion ambitions come to true.
