About Cleveland Chain Reaction
The Cleveland Chain Reaction Project is being produced to create jobs, investment and prosperity in Cleveland’s neighborhoods while providing education and coaching for entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners for the greater benefit of our community.
Cleveland Chain Reaction follows in the footsteps of the CNBC/LeBron James show “Cleveland Hustles,” a reality television series aired on CNBC in 2016. While inspired by Cleveland Hustles, Cleveland Chain Reaction is an independent and unrelated effort that was started by some of the same Clevelanders involved to support the continued opportunity that Cleveland Hustles sparked. This project’s goals are:
1.) To help individuals of all backgrounds pursue and achieve their dream of running their own business.
2.) To connect entrepreneurs to various options for capital including prize money, private investors, low interest loans, and crowdfunding.
3.) To promote Cleveland neighborhoods and introduce the general public to the businesses and people who reside there.
4.) To place new businesses in the city of Cleveland in an effort to create jobs and prosperity.
The Cleveland Chain Reaction project is produced by the Greater Cleveland Partnership’s Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE) in collaboration with JumpStart and is featured on FOX 8’s “Kickin’ it with Kenny” morning show. Program sponsors this year include Bedrock, KeyBank and MAGNE.
