Founded in 2008, the organization employs a multi—disciplinary approach to its work, creating spaces for new ideas, compiling research, supporting local entrepreneurs and leaders, and helping other organizations implement their innovations.
LURN administers a suite of economic development initiatives that provide resources to businesses and entrepreneurs in low-income neighborhoods. These initiatives include:
LURN is seeking an Associate to support LURN’s economic development initiatives with a primary focus on the Semi’a Fund, a microloan program designed for entrepreneurs in low-income neighborhoods with limited access to capital. Over the last couple of years, the Semi’a Fund has expanded and increased its loan portfolio. LURN is seeking a self-motivated individual to assist in the development and execution of programs and workshops designed for Semi’a Fund borrowers. For LURN, the Semi’a Fund is not only providing low-income entrepreneurs access to healthy capital but also dispensing the tools and resources to help these entrepreneurs grow their businesses.
We believe this position requires an energetic individual, who is skilled in oral presentation skills and excited to work with a wide range of community members. The Associate will have experience leading group workshops; they will be confident in their abilities to design, develop, and implement tools that add value for Semi’a Fund borrowers and entrepreneurs. Thus, the Associate will not only be a loan underwriter, but also as a coach and project manager for the Semi’a Fund’s clients. The Associate will report to the Director of Programs and Operations and will work closely with LURN staff on other projects as necessary.
