At the Crossroads of Campus and Community
The Intersect Fund is a New Brunswick-based non-profit organization offering a host of services to low-income entrepreneurs in the area. Since getting started in November 2008, we have served more than 500 clients, training them in the basics of running a business. We also offer long-term support to help entrepreneurs along what can often be a difficult road to a successful enterprise.
The Intersect Fund was founded by students at Rutgers University and still relies largely on student staff members to administer our business services. Though young, they are well trained, having gone through a rigorous process to understand the intricacies of small business ownership and the needs of local entrepreneurs.
Our connection to a university means more access for our entrepreneurs to customers and resources. Relying on volunteer labor means we can keep our services affordable. Our staff and clients both work toward a more vibrant and sustainable community.
