"One of the most innovative nonprofits and social enterprises of 2016!"

It's official. INTERISE is a 2016 Classy Awards Finalist, part of a prestigious group of nonprofits and social enterprises selected for their "excellence in social innovation and ability to solve a social problem." This year, Classy had 1300 programs across all cause categories submit nominations, and the competition was at an all-time high.

They say we may be classy. #WhoKnew?

The Interise Network: 60+ cities, nationwide.

If we're classy, it's because we make partners look good, very good.

INTERISE licenses our Streetwise ‘MBA’™ to partners who deliver it through their own locally branded programs. We provide the curriculum, training, quality assurance and evaluation, enabling our partners to effectively and efficiently launch a national program.

Scale established small businesses, create jobs, and develop local economies. Now that's Classy.

Our partners achieve this kind of mission impact.

On average, INTERISE small businesses create jobs at 5x the annual rate of the private sector as a whole. 93% of Interise businesses are owned by women, minorities, immigrants, or located in a lower-income community. They have secured over $3 billion in government and institutional contracts.

OVER THE NEXT THREE YEARS, WE WILL EXPAND OUR NETWORK FROM 60 TO 90 CITIES.

Root, root, root for the home team.

Classy's Collaborative + Awards Ceremony comes to Boston June 14-16. You can root us on by sharing the word that "Interise is the best story that you've never heard."
