    **About Companies Who Care**
    In 2019, Fund 17 launched Companies Who Care, an initiative to convene established businesses around investing in an inclusive economy for New Orleans. Companies Who Care support entrepreneurs directly through workshops, mentor meetings, pro bono hours, etc., and gain access to benefits such as exclusive networking events, marketing opportunities, and lead generation via the Fund 17 entrepreneur family. Membership dues ensure the sustainability of Fund 17's programs for local entrepreneurs.
