The inaugural retail incubator to help seven local entrepreneurs launch businesses in this mixed-use development is part of Mayor Jackson’s $65 million Neighborhood Transformation Initiative.

These small businesses in GlenVillage include a barbershop, local boutiques, a coffee shop, and multiple restaurants.

The City of Cleveland calls GlenVillage, “part of an overall effort to bridge economic disparity and institutional inequality by building wealth in neighborhoods throughout the city.”
