Mission

LEND is dedicated to fighting poverty within Evanston by empowering and supporting the entrepreneurial aspirations of our neighbors.

Utilizing the unique skills of Northwestern's talented student body to support our clients through comprehensive, rigorous and systematic training, LEND seeks to create an environment in which low-income Evanston residents can obtain the business skills and capital they need to realize their entrepreneurial dreams.
