Problem Worth Solving

Starting a business is a heavy lift and risky, but in order to have a thriving local economy, downtowns need more opportunities for commerce and community engagement.  It also needs a diverse population and a variety of culinary experiences.

Your Solution

The solution is to create a “mini mall” with an international food bazaar that incubates small businesses and allows them to test out the market before increasing the scale of their business to occupy an individual space. 


Market Opportunity - Who are your target customers and how will you reach them? How will you distribute your product or service? How does your idea meet an opportunity for import replacement?

An international food bazaar and mini mall will appeal to consumers and business owners alike.  The market will allow food vendors, artisans and services to set up “pop ups” on a rotating basis.  It will be marketed towards both locals and tourists and will meet the needs of a low income population. 

Your Competition

Restaurants and small grocers and other locally owned businesses and shopping centers present direct competition.

Idea Pitch - What are you selling? Why is it important?

An international food bazaar and mini mall would showcase the diversity and ingenuity of the neighborhood in which it’s housed.  It will be a place for local businesses to showcase their products and provide a community gathering space.
