Entrepreneurs will be paired with mentors who are industry experts and will coach them through taking on a single family investment project. When the entrepreneur has identified a property*, they can apply to the E.N.U.F. fund for seed capital in the form of an equity investment. 

10 entrepreneurs will be selected for the program.

* A note on underserved

E.N.U.F. has purposely chosen to focus on entrepreneurs who come from underserved backgrounds who are interested in a real estate investment project located in an underserved community. 

When we think about the definition of underserved, we look at a wide variety of factors: median income levels, rent burden rates, high school and college graduation rates, whether the community is located in a bank desert, poverty rates, just to name a few. No one factor is dispositive and E.N.U.F. will take a holistic view when determining whether a neighborhood is underserved.
