As a creative and entrepreneurial city we want citizens of every economic level to have opportunities to participate in entrepreneurship.
Our monthly publication, Thrive Detroit Street Newspaper, provides a way for those who are unhoused (homeless) or vulnerably housed to have a micro-enterprise.
Micro-entrepreneurs purchase the publication for 25 cents per paper and sell it for $1. In order to remove the income barrier, the initial batch of papers are provided at no cost to the seller.
THRIVE DETROIT gives Metro Detroiters an opportunity to assist those who are homeless or vulnerably housed at a micro-level. Not a hand-out, but a purchase; not disgrace, but dignity.
