Center for Community Based Enterprise

Detroit, Michigan

The Center for Community?Based Enterprise (C2BE) facilitates economic empowerment in Detroit through the development of shared assets and community?based enterprise (CBEs).

C2BE’s vision is to create an information and business resource center and co?operative that serves, and is made up of, community?based enterprises and neighborhoods using shared asset building strategies; enabling collaboration, sustained economic growth, development of patient capital for member businesses, good local jobs, and improved quality of neighborhood life.

C2BE is dedicated to economic justice in the Detroit metro region. Toward this end their goals for the next five years are:

  • To support the creation of 100 plus jobs at livable wages, at least half of them in the context of worker-ownership;
  • To create a local business ecosystem where CBE's are incubated and cultivated in an environment of mutual respect; 
  • To place real and tangible assets into the hands of Detroit communities that will increase their incomes, decrease their expenses, and build community through mutual self-determination.
