One thought on “Eyes on Milwaukee: How Juli Kaufmann Is Fixing Milwaukee”

  1. Virginia Small says:

    She appears to be Milwaukee’s Juli Appleseed. Jeramey, thanks for connecting the dots about all the projects this visionary and change agent has undertaken or supported.

    Her statement about Fund Milwaukee is powerful: “We are not venture investors, we are believers in Milwaukee and each other. Our returns are not only measured in an interest rate, but in building local businesses that mirror our values, in nurturing entrepreneurs that give back to our city and our people.”

    Since small businesses are responsible for a huge percentage of new jobs, efforts like these can have a big impact–incrementally. And redesigning South Second Street as a pedestrian and bike-friendly “Complete Street” project has been a big boon for that area’s economy.

    Hats off to Juli and her partners in all these efforts!
