"IN THE END, THE AMERICAN DREAM IS NOT A SPRINT, OR EVEN A MARATHON, BUT A RELAY. OUR FAMILIES DON'T ALWAYS CROSS THE FINISH LINE IN THE SPAN OF ONE GENERATION. BUT EACH GENERATION PASSES ON TO THE NEXT THE FRUITS OF THEIR LABOR." ~JULIAN CASTRO
We are pursuing an economy that works for everyone and recognizes the importance of working toward transnational change based on cooperation, equality, social integrity, racial justice, and environmental sustainability. We are convinced that strong, local, small businesses will contribute to a world in which everyone can afford to live in safe, healthy, and thriving communities.
VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL MARKETS
A vertical market is a market in which vendors offer goods and services specific to an industry, trade, profession, or other group of customers with specialized needs. A horizontal market is a market in which a product or service meets a need of a wide range of buyers across different sectors of an economy.

FACILITATING PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS
Public-private collaboration finance creates and operates projects including public transit networks, parks, and convention centers. A public-private cooperation can help speed up the completion of a project or even make it possible. Tax or other operational revenue concessions, liability protection, or partial ownership rights over nominally public services and property are typical in public-private partnerships.
Large-scale government projects, such as roads, bridges, or hospitals, can be constructed using private finance through public-private partnerships.
These collaborations thrive when private-sector technology and innovation are combined with public-sector incentives to accomplish tasks on time and under budget.
Cost overruns, technical faults, and a failure to fulfill quality requirements are risks for private enterprise, whereas for public partners, agreed-upon usage rates may not be supported by demand—for example, for a toll road or a bridge.
Despite their benefits, public-private partnerships are frequently attacked for blurring the distinctions between legitimate public aims and private for-profit activity, as well as for perceived public exploitation owing to self-dealing and rent seeking.
The shortlist of our fearless leader: Small business owner, financier, strategist, consultant, community advocate, award-winning business person, and mother. We think Kara probably wears a cape when she is not at the office. If you are running at a million miles an hour, Kara is going a million-plus-one. She operates as her future self and always sees the world as full of untapped possibilities. She is constantly observing, researching, thinking, and planning. Kara will build it…better, faster, stronger than before.
KARA DIPIETRO, CEO
John has built a stellar reputation as the person who gets things done. He is the task master, the people connector, the program engine, the plan administrator. You have the machine? John’s got all the parts, so just step aside. He is the ultimate go-to guy. Not impressed? Well…John’s success comes after serving over 30 years in prison (ten on death row) for a false conviction. Not. Even. Kidding. John’s personal response to being wrongfully convicted? He gives back to the incarcerated and re-entering population, with dedicated efforts in reform, social justice, work force re-entry and supporting marginalized communities in and around Baltimore.
JOHN HUFFINGTON, COO
You can’t come up with a single thing that Josh won’t find fabulous. That’s just how he rolls. Taxed with full workload (he’s the money guy – taxed – get it?) managing the finances for Kara’s companies, he also runs his own company in his spare time. Yet, we have never once heard Josh complain. He is the antithesis of a “nerdy numbers guy”. He is always the bright spot in the room.
