Big things happen when you gather and activate lots of small things.

It’s how communities are built—brick-by-brick or person-by-person—held together by the mortar and momentum that makes the whole greater than the sum of their parts. Richer. More meaningful. Relevant. That’s why we created 1M—a platform to amplify and accelerate hundreds of small ideas, experiments, and projects—that help reconnect people to our downtowns and main streets, one million sq ft at a time.

Our team

1M is led by a small team dedicated to finding and supporting project creators, startups, space owners and community partners that bring downtowns and main streets to life.
