The Cleveland Chain Reaction Project is being produced to create jobs, investment and prosperity in Cleveland’s neighborhoods while providing education and information for entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners to benefit our community.
The Cleveland Chain Reaction follows in the footsteps of the CNBC/LeBron James “Cleveland Hustles,” a reality television series aired on CNBC in 2016 (www.cnbc.com/cleveland-hustles). While inspired by Cleveland Hustles, The Cleveland Chain Reaction is an independent and unrelated effort with some of the same Clevelanders involved to support the continued opportunity that Cleveland Hustles sparked. This project will bring $650K - $1 million of direct investment from private investors to an emerging Cleveland neighborhood by locating five new businesses in that neighborhood that can create jobs and prosperity.
THE CLEVELAND CHAIN REACTION project is being produced by Cleveland Neighborhood Progress (CNP), the Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE), and JumpStart and is being featured on air by Cleveland’s local news station, FOX 8.
Alan Glazen, of Glazen Urban, was one of the original investors on Cleveland Hustles. He helped create Chain Reaction and was involved as a partner in 2017 & 2018. He now serves as a Senior Advisor to Chain Reaction.
