GigRoots

About This Show

Show Info:

A podcast featuring stories of entrepreneurs from disinvested communities across the United States, and their journeys of moving from ‘marginalized to mainstream’. It also features the ESOs, community stakeholders, and institutions that support grassroots economics. Each episode interviews individuals in which they discuss their issues, challenges, failures, opportunities and successes on the road to establishing a sustainable small business. The entrepreneurs themselves span across many different cultures and backgrounds, with most operating among historically disadvantaged communities and marginalized contexts. What each has in common is their desire to provide steady income for their families. This is not about going from welfare to becoming a millionaire; this is about the slow and steady process of moving from working class to middle class amidst an ever-changing gig economy.
