A homeless entrepreneur is a homeless person who wants to tell their story and work to get back on their feet.
S/he is a conscious citizen who thrives to give their best, but doesn’t currently have the right resources, tools, unconditional love and network required to change their situation.
Many times, what helps them survive is what also keeps them from advancing. A homeless entrepreneur personifies hope.
